Author Topic: Feeding ADF canned clams???  (Read 1891 times)

I have read in numerous freshwater aquarium books that carnivorous fish will eat canned clams. I was thinking that this would be a good way to feed my ADF with protein, so long as the clams are chopped into very small peices and hand fed to the frog so my danios don't gobble it all up. I have not tried it yet, but I need advice.

Several brands of canned clams now add chicken broth instead or along with the claims.  I now buy clam juice when I cook with them.
I would think that it could pollute your tank. They are also high in salt.

It will be interesting to see what others have to say on this.
