Well, I didn't mean for this to get this deep! I wasn't looking at the "to
feed live fish or not" issue, simply the use of "wild-caught" feeders, vs
"purpose-grown" feeders. I feed my fish feeder fish, but I use fish that
where breed and raised specifically for that purpose not taken from the
wild. I was curious about the issues and impact more then the morality. My
feeders live a pretty good life. They have a clean tank to live in and they
are feed well. Sure they die, but that would happen in the wild as well.


I think someone said that he supports those who do what is morally correct.
he feels that feeding wild caught fish to his captive fish at home is
correct so he supports his actions.
