    My concern would be any of the weird chemicals the fish are exposed to before the new goldfish died, copper based medications, etc. and also the calcium levels in the fish. Not sure if there could be enough in the fish to throw off the mantids next molt or not. Although some Tarantulas will catch fish and apparently molt OK.
