It's like beef heart. Fish get bloat from it because it's a protein they can't digest.

That's still generalizing. Yes fish who eat veggie/algee would get bloat.

What I'm saying is fish that eat other fish in the wild... How would they get bloat? They already have high protein diets. Crickets/hoppers are one of the most healthy things you can feed to carnivorous fish. So I guess I'm asking why would insects give fish bloat and not shrimp/crarfish? To me that makes no sense at all.

Shrimp is a diet they are built to eat. Its like a human that try's a different cultures food. Like if your used to eating American food then you eat like Korean food u will get a upset stomach. They aren't used to this foreign protein.

Certain enzymes are chemically and allosterically arranged to break down certain proteins. If an organism has never encountered a certain protein before, enzymes it already has might by chance work sufficiently at metabolizing them. It's also likely that no enzyme they create will work at metabolizing the foreign proteins.

There are millions upon millions of different proteins - proteins are the foundation of life - the core product of genetic translation. To assume that are all exchangeable willy-nilly is asking for trouble, especially when it comes to dietary needs of captive specimens.

I only feed fish food which consist of products they would encounter naturally - if they are wild originating specimens. Farm bred fish are fine on most any number of artificially prepared mixtures, or natural alternatives.

Well said, that's what I was looking for. I guess it makes sense. Thanks.
