I have a Rose hair Tarantula, and I offer her half a dozen crickets every 1-2 weeks. If she doesn't eat them within 24 hours I take them out. Usually the female crickets have enough time in the tank to lay a few eggs, and I get some unwanted baby crickets. I was wondering if anyone had experience with feeding them or if they are a good choice of food at all. Would a baby cricket be okay for an adult betta if it was thrown in occasionally for variety?

All fish would eat baby crickets. Let the cricket soften up in water and then the fish will be all over it :sick:

Im not sure if a betta will be able to eat them, depends on the size and toughness of the cricket.
I feed my oscar crickets and locusts atleast twice a week as a treat, he loves them :rolleyes:

if you are talking micro crickets then most cyprinids would take them
anything larger would require a fish with a mouth big enough to eat the cricket, so say a fish above 3"
preferably a cyprinid, cichlid or a characin.

to sum up 99.9% of fish kept if it is small enough to fit in the mouth of the fish
