    Re: Smelt & silversides

    The ones I get from petsmart are extremely smelly. I only feed these when I have to due to the smell, fresh and on their way out.

    If it's just a "fishy smell" then it's fine. Sometimes they do have a pungent odor... they are fish after all!

    They are really bad! My garters wouldn't eat any but my cats were very interested! I'm not sure it's worth the smell! It doesn't seem to go away!

    Extremely smelly, in my experience, but some batches are worse than others.

    Actually they do look like fry! Big eyes with white bodies exactly like you described. I've been using them relatively frequently, like every third feeding, so I wanted to make sure.

    I can't find Sally's here...Only Omega One. Found a pic - you can kind of see how they look.

    Those looks weird.. i don't know..

    Only place I know where to get them is Pet stores, which is why I'm never buying them. Too much $$... but it lasts a long time with a few babies.

    I bought adult silversides. Do they like the fry better?
