Hi All,

I feed my current rainbow aro (Dino) freeze dried whole shrimp. I had been feeding my late Pearl the same. Dino seems to like the shrimp as he eats it all but I'm just wondering whether I need to switch to live fish.

The problem is a morality issue with feeding live fish or any other live animal. I kind of feel guilty to feed my arow live fish as this would mean that I'm taking one life to sustain another.:016:

Has any one else felt the same way? What other food can I give Dino except live fish or worms (dino doesn't seem to like pellets:016:).

Thanks

mixed diet is the best..... the topic of morality in this case is complicated, we can debate till the cow flies to the moon also there will be no winner...... the important point is the aro doesn't have a choice but you have..... make your choice wisely.

as long as the diet has enough nuterients necessary for the aro then its good enough.

Hey guys,

Thanks for the advice. Thanks yeowyin. You really got me thinking when you said "the important point is the aro doesn't have a choice but you have..... make your choice wisely". Made a lot of sense.

I got the aro some guppies to start off with but I'm afraid I over did it a bit and ended up with a large school of guppies in the tank which made the water dirty. However Dino seemed to like the chase and the fish. I managed to clean out most of them now. So willing to start over with the live fish. This time maybe a different type but just a few to start off with. Any suggestions?

Thanks

I got him some other feeder fish this time. Not guppies. These look like baby goldfish or something. Mostly orange and red in colour. I'll get the name next time. The aro seems to like them too but a bit more difficult to catch as they are faster than guppy.

I'm in Penang and I get my fish from CTY aquarium. They have around 3/4 kinds of feeder fish, centipedes, frogs, blood worms etc... Good choice I guess but depending on how these new ones feed the aro I think I'll stick to them for a while longer.
