    Re: Feeding Garters Shrimp? Possible?

    Must have been farmed in America. Tilapia cannot survive here in the wild or in any temperate climate. Water has to be warm and climate tropical. Most of the tilapia we eat is native to tropical Africa.

    Must be. I just take what I can get, really. Fish is something the snakes get once every couple weeks as a little variety and treat.

    Re: Feeding Garters Shrimp? Possible?

    I have two pet tilapia. They are interesting fish.... one is a Tiger Tilapia, (butterkofferi) and one is a common tilapia that is commonly farmed as food. He came in at a local shop as a tiny baby the size of my pinky nail with some feeder guppies. Nobody knew what he was, so Jim gave him to me to raise. He is now well on his way to being a foot long monster!!! I have thought to myself... what if I chopped you up and fed you to my snakes? That'll teach you to nibble my fingers!!!

    hehehe, it was a joke... I let my fish nibble my fingers all the time... I don't mind! Sometimes the tilapia bites pretty hard though!

    I have (with other fish) a little blue gourami, he's so calm. He's the only little fresh water fish i've seen that doesn't flip out when you touch him. He'll bite anything that is front of him, though, including my fingers. He's awesome. Heck, you can pet him

    Re: Feeding Garters Shrimp? Possible?

    thought i might share an experience that took place about four or five years ago i was in my rep room it was feeding time and i had decided to feed all the creatures at the same time, i feed my prawns to my amphibs about every third feed, i place the prawns on a small plate to cut them down to bite size but on this occasion i could not find were i had placed the said prawns ,after a brief search i happened to glance into kenzo's viv [she's my rescue radix] where she was just polishing off the last of them, she has always been an excellent eater so i don't know if its just her or if prawns would be accepted by other garters.
    i was not my normal habit to feed my creatures on the same day, watched kenzo for a few days, no reaction and just normal stools
