Feeding ....

Postby prpldrgn420 » 2009-10-20 18:01

I have not purchased any fish yet but i did have a question. I have heard that crickets are a good source of food. I was just wanting to know if this is a good idea as i have a fish shop right up the road from me. and he has crickets pretty cheap.

Hi and welcome :) that depends very much on the species of the fish. Large fish capable of eating something which is cricket sized may benefit from them, but mainly if the crickets are fed on nutritious foods (you are what you eat, what it eats style) which means that you have to keep feeding them after you buy them. Keep in mind that most community fish are too small to even manage a cricket and the herbivores should not be fed them for obvious reasons. There are of course fish suck as archers who must have live bugs as food because of their feeding habits.

On the subject of live foods, my personal policy is avoid if I can altogether, but ignoring that.. aquatic live foods are a no go for health reasons: they are considerably more likely to carry diseases then dry foods (which are essentially not capable of that), so if one absolutely must feed aquatic live foods, get them frozen and try to feed those of marine origin to freshwater (eg. brine shrimp) and vice versa. This, as you can probably guess, does not apply to non-aquatic bugs, crickets et al but I thought you might be interested in

So, as for me.. I feed an appropriate dry food diet for four days per week, one day peas, one day frozen dry food and one day no food (not in any particular order).

What species were you thinking about keeping?

Don't forget to (fishless) cycle your tank before getting the fish!

Wow that was so helpful thank you. I have seen some dryed crickets would this be ok vs. the live crickets as a treat or should i just stay away from crickets all together.

Fish are more likely to eat live crickets then live, and the live ones are probably more nutritious too.. as mentioned, crickets are not aquatic, so either way should be fine :)

The best diet for Goldfish would consist of any coldwater/Goldfish pellets or flakes 4-5 times per week, boiled and de-shelled peas or other vegetables 2-3 times per week and no food at all on one day per week. All food must be eaten in 30-60 seconds and excess food should be removed. The reason for one food-free day and the vegetables is that Goldfish are known to have poor digestive systems and need their system to be cleared every so often to avoid long term problems.

There is still no exact Crocs Shoes statement about the origin of the word "Black Friday".Coach Logo Monogram Tote In Apricot The legendary law was that the Philadelphia police created such a word with a negative meaning in the 1950s.Coach Logo Monogram Tote In Black After Thanksgiving Day on Thursday, due to the annual Army/Navy American Football Tournament held in Coach Logo Monogram Tote In Apricot Philadelphia on Saturday, hordes of people gathered in the city on Friday, and the stores used this opportunity to offer great merchandise to attract people to shop.Coach Logo Monogram Shoulder Bag In Black What the police are facing is a long, busy job. It was not until the 1980s that Black Friday began Coach Logo Monogram Hobo Bag In Coffee to win a broader and better reputation.
But the origins of Cyber Monday are clearer and only appeared a decade ago.Coach Logo Charm Hobo Bag In Rose The term was coined in 2005 by the National Retail Federation to describe Monday after Thanksgiving. At that time,Coach Logo Charm Satchel In Brown people continued to shop online after returning to work.
There are fewer ads on Cyber Monday
During Thanksgiving, many people already know the Coach Charm Satchel In Brown best deals on Black Friday before going out to shop. This is because retailers posted Black Friday ads early in October.Coach Monogram Crossbody Bag In Khaki
However, we see relatively few ads on Cyber Monday, probably because retailers already have an insight Coach Monogram Crossbody Bag In Black into which merchandise traders will choose.
Say goodbye to the opening of the store
The number of retailers' door-to-door (Doorbusters)Coach Monogram Backpack In Apcicot ads is decreasing.Coach Factory Outlet Store
Since Cyber Monday is the day of online shopping. Many people believe that there is no reason Nike Lebron Soldier 10 X Shoes black to squeeze the door to the local Bestbuy store.

Retailers are also beginning to listen to shopper feedback.
Today, it is common for retailers to NIKE KD 8 Breast cancer Shoes launch the so-called Black Friday “Open the Door” on the Internet.
Most sales are completed in less than 24 hours
One of the most distinctive features of Cyber Monday may Nike Lebron Soldier 10 EP Shoes black yellow be the transitibility of its transactions, especially compared to Nike Lebron Soldier 10 X Shoes black gold Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Most of the transactions on Cyber Monday ended on NIKE Lebron James 9 Soldier Sprite the same day.
There are more "instantaneous" offers on Cyber Monday,Nike Kyrie Irving 2 blue yellow such as Amazon's lightning discount. Whether using a laptop, a mobile phone or a tablet device, consumers often stare at the screen Kyrie Irving Shoes because the merchant offers are short and the buyers compete fiercely.
Online sales on Cyber Monday are the hottest
Cyber Monday is the largest online Cheap Nike Lebron 15 shopping day of the year, generating $3.45 billion in sales last year, an increase of more than 12% from the same period last year. Among them, mobile shopping (that is, shopping with mobile devices) Women's Crocs Crocband Flip Candy Pink has played a lot of roles. Mobile shopping accounted for 47% of retail site visits and 31% of sales.
Different stores will shine
Black Friday is usually dominated by retailers such as Best Buy,Men's Crocs Crocband Flip White Kohl's, and Target, and on Cyber Monday, people will see that some lesser-known businesses are more attractive to consumers. .Flip Flops For Women Stores like Crocs and Levi have offered real discounts. So don't be surprised if you find Clogs For Womensomething unexpected and cheap.
Fashionista loves Cyber Monday
Just like the Olympic season, each shopping festival Flip Flops For Men has different shopping activities. During Thanksgiving and Black Friday, it is more suitable for buying electronic products, and Cyber Monday is reflected in other products.Women's Crocs Baya Clog Pepper The specials for clothes and shoes are good, and retailers will, in many cases, launch unsold Black Friday offers, and fight again.
