Re: DPs and planaria

They don't eat them because Planaria don't exist in their natural habitat? Seriously? So, if I bring to a lion a cangaroo he won't eat it? This is only an example, understandme...

Re: Dwarf Puffer only eating brine shrimp.

Re: DPs and planaria

Re: DPs and planaria

Thanks for explaining what is Planaria, but we already know. And what is naturally found in tanks? A fish that jumps to it?

Re: DPs and planaria

Have you seen other fish eat them? No, but I have read: "Josh Davis, President of Live Fish Direct, says that the following fish are known to eat Planaria, although he asserts that almost any fish will eat them: angel fish, fat heads, gambusia, orangethroat darters, redbelly dace, sand shiner,...
