Mealworms?

Long with keeping fish I keep geckos ( prob not spelled right ) I feed the geckos mealworms. Could I feed my fish live mealworms too ?

My fish love mealworms, I feed them the large meal worms but they have smaller ones too. I have C/A S/A cichlids and Leporinus. Some fish might not be able to handle mealworms as well. What kind of fish do you plan on feeding?

Maybe some of the very small meal worms but be careful because of the hard shell , im not sure how those fish will handle it.

I imagine you could cut them to about the size of the fish's mouth , my fish are larger and they are able to inhale the worms.

No , they are fine like they are. I feed my fish all kinds of worms, bugs, crawfish, shrimp, veggies, ect. they like a variety.
