    Can African Dwarf Frogs Eat Spiders?

    I just noticed a small spider just above the water line in my 40 gal tank with African dwarf frogs in it. If the frogs can eat spiders, I am interested in feeding it to them. If not, I'll just collect the spider and put it outside. :) So does anyone know if its safe for them or if they would...

    Half banded spiny eel food times?

    He is about 5-6 years old, I've had him for around two months. In his past home, he was fed frozen blood worms, so that's what I've stuck with. He only seems to be interested in blood worms or occasionally daphnia. People online have said 2-3 times is a good amount per week. I'm assuming one...

    Are frozen mysis shrimp enough of a diet for a blind betta?

    I have a blind betta. I have to "hand" feed him with tweezers with food that is long enough that he can feel it and grab it. It's a bear to feed him frozen (defrosted of course) mysis shrimp but I read that's probably the best for the situation. When I'm going to be gone for extended periods of...

    Food recommendations?

    What and how often should I feed my circumcinctus? I've had him for a month now, hes about 5 years old. The past owner fed him frozen bloodworms, he loves them and so do the other fish. I have bought 5 packets of frozen daphnia which he isnt interested in at all. I'm happy just feeding him...

    Peacock eel?

    Hi, I have recently got a peacock eel. He lives in fresh water, not salt water. This may be controversial but hes lived in fresh water for a little over a year, he seems happy and healthy. My question is, how often should I feed him? I feed him frozen bloodworms which he loves. Google says 2 -...

    Going on vacation, recommendations?

    Hi guys, I'm going out for 2 weeks starting in mid-August. I have nobody close enough that I can leave feeding to, and after last year's experience and reading, I've decided that, most likely; I'll just leave the fish without food. So, here's where I am: I I've started to ramp up feeding to...

    Feather fin synodontis feeding

    Hi there, I own a feather fin syno about 7 inch long. I’m worried that he isn’t getting enough food. He usually stays in his ship all day and when I feed my other catfish he doesn’t bother moving. I’ve even tried putting food through a tube directly into the ship but doesn’t seem bothered. I’m...

    Dwarf gourami ate all floater plants

    My tank currently had 5 corys, 2 otos and 7 neon tetras. Added a dwarf gourami a couple of days ago, a surprise gift from a family member who found out I had the tank, and thankfully it seems it's a good match for all the other fish. However, I had water sprite and some other plant I don't...

    What do you feed to your grindal worm?

    I feed grindal worm to my betta and guppy. And I feed cat’s artificial food to the grindal worm. There's no problem at all now, but I am very curious about what other people feed to their grindal worm. I will appreciate it if you would answer my question.

    What should I feed my 2 day old platy fry?

    My new platies recently gave birth to fry. One batch was premature, but they seem to be doing fine with the exception of a couple that have died. The other batch had a couple odd balls, with a conjoined pair and a deformed one, but most of them are still alive. Thing is, they won't eat the...
