Mealworms fed to marine fish

Hi all,

I was really curious on wether any of my fish could eat mealworms. I have 2 False Percula Clownfish, Royal Gramma, Blue Tang and an Orange Spotted Goby.

Thanks!

Maybe as a treat. Keep in mind that this isn't something that marine fish would eat often and nine chances out of ten wouldn't supply what they need to survive to them.

I would assume not, but I wouldn't look to it for anything more than a random treat.

The shells of the meal worm are hard to digest even for the animals that are supposed to eat them . I would recommend against it as I only see it causing impaction.
