    I know a guy that uses it to photograph his fish. He sticks it on a rock and while the fish pick at it he snaps their picture. I have fed it in the past, I just don't have any at this time.
    I don't feed larger fish or mbuna's.

    I have 70 aquariums. My tanks are getting crowded with babies . I am keeping cichlids and livebearers. Way too many fish.

    They're not good for apistos or rams. I can vouch for that through sad experience. Of course, afterwards I got some advice. I was advised to never feed the freeze dried tubifex to these guys. I've also heard what Paul stated about the freeze dried tubifex being a disease vector. Since then, I've stayed away from using the tubifex and use red worms (live) & blood worms (frozen).

    I've never owned anything that would eat it if I tried.
    I'm not a complete idiot, some pieces are missing.
