    Super Amount of Info. Ive been feeding my fish a combination of pellets, Krill, an Tilapia fillet for acouple months, with the occasional feeder here an there (so they get a lil workout). My feeders usually last awhile(50 usually last a couple weeks). an they eat well to (frozen brine shrimp) as my fish are big enough to take large food.

    There's no way to answer that. Wild feeders could be appropriate to feed your wild-caught fish. But, without knowing the waters the feeders come from it's hard to recommend them. You could catch some of those feeders, place them in a quarantine tank, and observe them for disease and parasites. If they appear to be clean then, go for it.

    i was hoping i could setup a quarintine tank for wild feeders for store bought fish later on. would it be a good idea to medicate the quarintine tank for common dieseases?

    It's never a good idea to medicate indiscriminately. Aside from possibly missing a pathogen, you may be strengthening the immunity of other pathogens by using improper dosages. Treat a quarantine tank as it is intended...use it to monitor the feeders for a period of time. IF you see indications of a disease or parasite then, treat as indicated.

    Talking

    I said it before I'll say it again ODDBALL you are the man!! awsome sticky ..

    had a feeling in my gut it was a good idea to quarentine the feeder's I catch from the river across the street form my house...

    bro if you can find the time please post some of your tank's I would be tickled pink to see them bare bottom or planted witch ever(I myself am a fan of the bare bottom tank...)

    hopefully one day we will not become the feeder.... peace......

    Good stuff. The numbers on the amounts of lipids is good stuff, it really opened my eyes. Even more motivation to feed your fish a varied diet.
    I love MFK, it brings people together, even if they are apart spatially.
