Hey all!

Quick question. Are these Gammarus sp. and are they save as fish food?
I got plenty of them in my two water barrels outside along with daphnies and other small copepods.
Probably not the best pictures, so sorry in advance.

Hi all,
They are Asellus, rather than Gammarus, this makes them more suitable for tropical tanks.

Cheers Darrel

Thanks! I tried feeding some to my i. Bimaculata. They got eaten right away.
