    Mushrooms are Fungi, not plants... It's in another kingdom. Animalia, Plantae, Fungi, Protista. Mushrooms are in Fungi. Also, as I mentioned, they store their energy as glycogen rather than glucose.

    Animals also store excess energy as glycogen...... save for possible problems with spores and toxins, feeding a mushroom to a Nep would not be much different than feeding it a bug.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Exactly why I wanted to do it -- I won't have to catch bugs for ones that don't catch many on their own. But because of the spores/toxins I won't do it. :/

    If you fed them the right kind of mushrooms it could enhance colors.............it's been known to happen!
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.
