u bastard i cant find smelt anywhere near me i looked all over
Smelt is considered small little fish. Why dont you just buy some shrimp also, freeze it then serve?? Plus smelt is a good way to enhance the red/color of your Ps...

my pacu's have a nice red underbelly my reds have a little red maybe the smelt will help bring out the color (they mostly feed on krill,freeze dried shrimp and the ocassional feeder)

Wait, is smelt fish or shrimp? I went to the grocery store and asked for smelt in the fish section. The guy just looked at me puzzeled. I thought it was a type of fish.

it is fish, i go through a whole large bag of smelt a week, the p's love it, all natural no preservatives, cleaned and beheaded so it is all good, thaw it in a strainer and throw it in there and wam a feeding frenzy.

is it safe to leave the head in. i think i might have seen some fresh one in them asain markets.
Should be no problem: I usually feed my reds smelt with head and guts included, and they eat it as quickly as the gutted and beheaded ones...

Just dont leave uneaten food in the tank for too long. I have seen salmon heads for sale before, and I think that I used to feed them to my old reds. Just make sure you dont get lazy, with any food, and leave it in the tank for an extended period of time. Doing so will invite thost [email protected] little white wroms that are just nasty.
