I have this vision I just can't get out of my head. I'll never sleep tonight, maybe never.

Oh BTW, if you want to congregate all your fish, snails, crabs, shrimps out of their nooks and cranies into one place, you know what works best for me? Beef ribs. Just make sure you have some meat on the bone and they will hover together like a swamp of bees over honeycomb. DP

Mental note to self: remember this thread when original poster asks why water quality is bad and corals seems to be withering.

To take a more serious approach, I doubt the stomach acids are able to break down the various food contents thus causing more stress on their internal organs. If you would like to take notes, my personal method of feeding fish involves target training where an animal is confined to a given feeding station. Once the animal is restrained in a holding container it is grasped and held to my lips where I begin to regurgitate a past meal, passing the broken down nutrients to the fish. This is a far superior aspect of feeding encouraging a properly varied diet that can be gently processed and maintain healthy internal organ functioning. My only warning is to be wary of pufferfish since over-regurgitation can cause a slight influx of proteins where the body begins to "puff up."

Dr - I would love to see a video of you feeding your fish these "exotic" foods. It would be very interesting!

Is that regurgitating chewed up pufferfish, or regurgitating TO a pufferfish. I'm kinda confused. And if my lips begin to tingle while chewing the pufferfish the first time, should I be concerned that "Fred", the sushi chef, said that this was the first time he tried to prepare fugu?
