Dear Masters and Friends: I am keeping Asian Arowanas with some other carnivores. Currently I am feeding below foods.
1. Market Prawn- as regular food at morning.
2. Hikari Tropical food sticks/AR-G1
3. Hikari Sinking Carnivore Pallets
4. Fresh water Fish Fillet
5. rarely Arowana gourmet(QH)-very rarely(3 months once) as it is occasionally available and costly too.
Please let me know I want to shift from Market prawn to below foods as I am unsure of the food value of MP after removing the skin. And I also feel insects are always a better option than fish/meat, but in other hand finding other live foods are rare in Kolkata. Need your suggestion if I want to shift on below food.
1. Earth Worm- available alive. whether it can be a regular food. Will it create indigestion.
2. Meal Worm- I do not find any seller nearby Kolkata? Will MW will be better than MP? If you can suggest with some seller.
3. Super Worm- I do not find any seller nearby Kolkata? Will MW will be better than MP? If you can suggest with some seller.
4. Crickets & frogs- Do not think about crickets as these are not cultured in India and due to destruction of forrest and use of chemical in paddy fields has reduced the Frog population also reducing drastically.
Need your suggestions on an alternate live food for my dishes.
insects are a good live food source for arowanas .with the exception of frogs i would be okay with any of the other insect food sources.
alternative to live foods are freeze dried foods that you can soak in water or vitamins and feed the fish.
unless you know the source of the live food or grow it yourself it shouldn't be a problem.
Im sorry that i couldn't help you with seller's in kolkata as im from chennai.they have canned meal worms here and few live sources which im yet to uncover
