 Hi  Benjamin,
 you  wont  get  any  lower  price  than  that,you  could  also  try  with  wild  guppies  as  feeders  wich  would  be  even  cheaper  but  then  there  is  a  possibility  of  infection  to  your  fishes.
 with  regards

 Hi  Benjamin,
   I  would  not  prefer  to  feed  feeder-goldies  /feeder-guppies  to  any  of  my  fishes.  By  the  way  to  what  fish  are  you  currently  feeding  goldies
 
 As  these  do  not  carry  a  lot  of  nutritions  required  to  any  fish.  Can  carry  diseases  and  infection  which  might  effect  pet  fish.
 
 I  would  rather  look  out  for  beef  heart  /  shrimps  /  worms  which  are  home  cultured.  and  care  is  taken  to  grow  them.
 
 If  i  am  a  veggie  then  would  look  out  only  for  pellets  and  flakes.

 Dear  Raghu,
 
 I  have  a  marine  aquarium.  I  have  two  lion,  three  anemeones  (2  carpet  &  1  tentacle)  and  two  trigger  fish.  I  feed  them  once  in  two  days  and  at  a  time  they  swallow  12  -  15  gold  fish.  
 
 By  the  way  is  this  feeding  pattern  ok?  Any  suggestion?
 
 Shrimp  /  worms  -  Home  cultured?  sounds  interesting.  Can  some  one  help  me  with  the  process?
 
 Can  some  one  give  me  an  alternate  feeding  if  available?
 
 regards
 
 Benjamin

 I  am  moving  this  thread  to  the  Marine  Fishes  Forum.  That's  where  it  belongs.
 
 It's  caused  enough  confusion  about  feeding  when  Marine  Fish  suddenly  prop  up!  Very Happy  
 
 Benjamin  be  ready  for  a  few  Marine  tank  keepers  now!  Very Happy

 no
 it  is  not  the  right  food  for  lions  and  even  triggers  -  Goldies  are  known  to  have  a  lot  of  fats  which  is  considered  undesirable  for  even  feeding  fresh  water  fish  like  arowanas.
 I  suggest  you  start  feeding  them  on  prawns  and  shrimps

 Goldfish  for  lions,  a  total  no  no.  Will  cause  liver  problems.
 
 Use  mollies,  if  you  really  want  to  feed  live  fish.  Best  bet  would  be  prawns.  I  mean,  the  market  prawns,  that  you  get  packed  and  frozen  in  Foodworld  and  the  likes.

 Aquascapes  and  Nitin  are  right.  Goldfish  are  not  a  good  idea  as  feeder  fish.  Not  for  Lions  or  Aros  or  any  other  fish  for  that  matter.
 
 
 Just  for  information'  sake  though,  are  there  any  farms  around  Blr?

 I'm  not  at  all  for  feeding  live  fershwater  fish  to  marine  fish.  Sure  the  marine  ones  will  gobble  them  up,  but  in  the  long  run  it  doesnt  help  their  dietary  requirements.  The  best  alternatives  is  to  feed  them  frozen  prawns  or  silversides  which  you  could  get  to  buy  from  a  fishmarket  or  cold  storage.  Lions,  triggers  and  anemones  readily  do  eat  them  with  no  issues.

 @bbenjamin,
 Really  feel  very  very  sorry  for  your  Marine  fish.  Atleast  now  you  should  know  that  goldfish  is  the  WRONG  choice  for  the  right  reasons.  
 
 Secondly,  the  feeding  frequency  for  lions  should  be  as  low  as  just  once  per  week,  since  what  they  eat  is  a  live  but  heavy  diet,  be  it  mollies  either.  And  for  anemones,  i  would  say,  best  is  once  per  two  weeks.  Dont  worry  they  wont  starve.  
 
 Third,  the  combo  of  lions  with  anemones  with  triggers,  may  not  be  safe.

 Thanks  a  lot  for  all  the  inputs.
 
 I  have  tried  feeding  my  lion  with  frozen  prawns.  But  they  refuse  to  eat  them.  The  same  with  anemones.  What  is  this  silverside?  Any  common  name?
 
 Also,  I  have  heard  about  home  made  food?  Can  some  one  help  me  on  this.
 
 Raghu  was  talking  about  home  cultured  Shrimps  /  worms.  What  is  this  all  about?
 
 Thanks  &  regards

 Since  ya  do  not  have  any  clownfish  for  the  anemone  that  you  have  kept,  its  quite  likely  for  the  anemone  to  behave  a  bit  abnormal.  They  very  much  enjoy  some  organic  touch.
 
 Try  starving  the  anemone  for  about  10  days,  but  provide  regular  lighting.  Occasionaly,  gently  move  a  small  piece  of  deshelled  prawn  /  your  fingers  over  its  tentacles  during  these  days.  Then  try  feeding  it  later.  It  should  work.

 Look  at  the  http://indianaquariumhobbyist.com/community/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewforum&f=24  
 
 or  the  fish  food  section  you  will  get  a  lot  of  info  on  home  culturing  of  shrimps  /  Blood  /  earth  worms/  mosquito  larve  /   Infusoria  and  others.
 
 I  suppose  i  know  it  for  sure  these  are  great  source  of  food  for  fresh  water  fishes.
 
 But  i  am  not  sure  about  Marine  fishes,  May  be  other's  here  can  help  you  if  you  can  feed  these  also  to  marine  ones.

 Hi  benjamin,
 the  best  option  (cheaper)  for  you  is  to  look  out  for  the  fishermen's  catch  -  there  are  a  lot  of  throw-away  fish  in  the  fisherman's  net  which  are  not  desirable  for  edible  purposes.  Try  to  make  friends  with  a  fisherman  and  you  might  just  get  some  fresh  fish  which  you  can  wash  and  store  in  your  freezer  for  feeding  your  fish  and  anemones  (small  fish  that  get  tangled  in  the  fisherman's  net  end  up  either  in  fish  meal  making  factories  or  just  thrown  away  by  the  fisherman  they  are  usually  the  cheapest  option  as  the  fisherman  would  give  them  to  you  by  the  kilos.  Smile  
 HTH
