Conch as food

Post by astrid37 » Mon Sep 30, 2019 6:20 pm

Hello All,
I found some fresh raw conch meat at my local grocery, and just wanted to double check that it isn't poisonous to my schoutedeni? I froze it then thawed it and soaked it in vitachem, and will cut it up and feed it to them as long as it's not toxic.
Thanks in advance.
Astrid

I don't see a problem. Why would you think it might be toxic?

I just couldn't find any solid info online and only one instance of someone feeding it on TPF, so was exercising an abundance of caution :). Thanks, PP!
