 Hi  all
                   Just  wanted  to  know  if  feeding  of  live  daphnia  is  safe  because  i  am  feeding  them  to  breeding  pairs  and  which  are  expensive.  They  all  relish  it  but  is  it  safe  to  feed  them  them.  Also  if  there  is  any  way  by  which  they  can  be  made  safe  to  be  fed  to  them.
 Thank  You
 Nikhil

 Why  can't  Discus  be  fed  with  Daphnia?  Sorry,  but  I've  never  owned  Discus,  and  know  nothing  about  them.

 Daphnia  is  quite  a  safe  food  when  compared  to  tubifex  worms,  but  the  risk  is  still  there  like  all  live  foods  which  are  not  cultured  but  collected.

 Hi  all,
 talking  about  live  food,  what  about  the  various  insects  that  turn  up  in  our  dals/lentils,  wheet,  rice  that  turn  up  in  our  kitchen.  
 
 My  servant,  seives  the  insects  and  dumps  it  in  my  pond,  my  goldfish,  koi  and  all  the  anabantids  in  there  love  it.  Never  tried  it  in  my  tanks  though.  
 
 do  u  guys  (and  gals  tooo)  think  it  is  a  good  idea  to  try  them  in  the  tanks????
 
 Cheers!!!!
 Arvind

 Nikhil  feed  all  you  want.  Only  get  a  good  fine  net  and  rinse  them  under  running  water  for  a  while.  My  4  inch  Fronts  chase  Daphnia  all  over  my  8  feet  tank.
 
 Feeding  daphnia  in  a  planted  tank  is  another  matter,  as  algae  gets  into  the  tank  with  daphnia....  oh  well  I  still  do  it.

 Nikhil,  
 Size  matters  here.  
 It  is  expensive  if  you  dont  breed  your  own  daphnia.
 
 Just  hatched  daphnia  is  best  for  frys  .Adult  daphnia  is  great  for  medium  sized  fish.Make  sure  you  sieve  the  daphnia  and  put  the  small  daphnia  back  into  the  tank  if  you  are  feeding  adult  dap.  to  medium  sized  fish.
 
 Daphnia  ,unless  adults  are  fed  in  bulk  is  of  no  use  for  big  fish.
 If  you  are  breeding  your  own  daphnia  then  you  will  be  depleting  your  breeding  stock  of  daphnia.  It  is  always  suggested  to  feed  only  30%  of    daphnia  caught  to  keep  the  daphnia  tank  running.

 Nikhil,
 
 Daphnia  is  abs.  safe  .
 If  you  are  sourcing  it  from  outside  its  better  to  disinfect  it  before  you  feed  the  fish  as  a  preventive  measure  or  like  Madan  has  said  rinse  it  under  running  water.

 Yo  Nikhil,
 
 Get  in  touch  soon,  as  you  are  freeding  daphnia  to  Breeding  Tangs.
 Ever  heard  of  gut  stuffing  daphnia  before  feeding?
 I  have  just  the  right  stuff  for  you,  Asthaxanthalin  in  non  concentrated  form  that  is  being  very  popularly  used  by  Discus  hobbyists.
   Increases  libido  and  egg  numbers,  also  helps  increase  red  colortion.
 I  am  going  to  try  this  out  now  and  need  another  guy  to  compare  results.

 Hi  Arvind!
 
 I've  fed  my  fighters  with  ants,  and  they  love  it!  But,  I  cannot  always  crawl  about  hunting  for  them.  So,  I  feed  them  sometimes  (as  a  treat)  with  mosquito  larvae.  
 
 How  would  you  rate  all  live  feed  according  to  their  calorific  value?  E.g:  are  brine  shrimp  more  nutritious,  or  are  Daphnia  or  Mosquito  larvae  or  live  worms....better?
