>>>...I could have TOLD you it was gonna die!
I wonder if any fishes eat tofu in the wild<<<

Yes...but could you tell me WHEN?
I think some high-protein plant products "smell" meaty to fish. The flooded
peanut fields next to the Red River (OK-TX) would be invaded by catfish
turned goober-ivorous. The goldeye in my tank really enjoyed eating green
peas. answer your question, Martin - fish (even carnivorous fish)
may not eat tofu but I'll bet some occassionally eat soybeans.
