Do you use feeder fish for your pet turtles?
The use of feeder fish for pet turtles (or other pets such as fish) is somewhat controversial. It is both encouraged and discouraged for several valid, not so valid, and even made-up reasons.
Some of the reasons for using / not using feeder fish include their nutritional value, health risks, hunting stimulation and exercise factors, cost, cruelty, pet store conditions for feeders, thiaminase and goldfish / rosy reds / fathead minnows, large bony pieces, and others.
