Hi,

I know lobster is an expensive option but is it a good idea to feed it to them? I fed them this in hopes that they would eat more. I raised them on feeder fish which was a bad idea but that's what they wanted so I let them have it. Anyway, I am trying to wean them off and they barely want to eat. I seemed to have had some luck with the lobster. It's really not even that expensive if you get the canning ones on sale. One will last a couple of weeks.

Thanks

Lol...when you start buying them live whole lobsters for feedings, send a few my way.

Yup, no problem with it, though no matter how cheap you find it, I would still think you could find frozen shrimp cheaper, and my fish all seem to love smelt for some reason.

As for them not wanting to eat much else, if all you offer them is other foods eventually they will start to eat it, very few fish will starve themselves to death. Just dont go back to feeder fish now that you realize they really arent helping your fish at all.
