Just wondering if it was alright if i fed my Giant danio's ants, houseflys, and maybe small house spirders?? Or would this be a bad idea?

I dunno about it: I'd be worried about what the bugs have been exposed to or where they'd been.

Is there a particular reason you want to feed them these things?

I'd say no.

Houseflies carry quite a few diseases and pathogens that may be deadly to the fish.

Ants go everywhere, who knows if the one you're about to feed just walked through your neighbor's ant poison yesterday? And they could sting and will bite (personal experience)

All spiders are venomous. They may be harmless to humans, but can be toxic to your fish.

You'd be better off with earthworms (if you don't use pesticides) or normal live foods.
