So which ones do you know of that are more...

    What unusual treats have you given your fish from time to time? (Vegetables, fruits, meats, man-made foods, live foods, etc.) I don't feed crazy food to my fish much, but when I had a 3-5 inch baby bass, I would feed him anything I found outside that could fit in his mouth, from grasshoppers to...
