    Eating a fish frame.

    I tied most of these hanging foods with a piece of fishing line it did not take them very long to eat all these extras.

    I have seen wild fish eat cooked chicken bones, foil from lollies, even cigarette buts, you would be surprised what I have seen over many years of fishing.

    :love: Lovely photos Keith,

    I also share with my fish when preparing fish for my own dinner. I press a piece of uncooked fish through the garlic press... The amanos would steal bigger fish pieces very fast. The fish skeleton is a very good idea - but mostly I buy fish fillet.:cool:

    The beauty of hanging a bigger piece of food is the bigger fish will rip it apart and the smaller pieces fall onto the substrate and this is where the smaller shy fish still get the same food.

    I think that is all. Somewhere in an old file there is a post about feeding different foods.
    The Forum I wrote it for closed down many years ago. Most if not all those photos were taken 15 years ago with my very old camera.

    On one of my many river cruises we pulled over to the bank for a BBQ and there were Carp every where (They are considered an invasive pest in our water ways) people were throwing their cigarette buts over board and the Carp were fighting over them them down.
    Some fish even with a full stomach they will try to eat more.

    With all my different foods it was great fun watching them.

    Think nature wild fish will eat practically every thing they can if they see it in the water.
    We have one native tropical FW fish that spits water on to low branches so the insects will fall into the water

    amm12m-800x533.

    Archerfish Fish
    The archerfish form a monotypic family, Toxotidae, of fish known for their habit of preying on land-based insects and other small animals by shooting them down with water droplets from their specialized mouths. The family is small, consisting of ten species in a single genus Toxotes.
