    Theres a thread over at the UK forum on feeding guppies to Nepenthes and I was wondering... Have any of you fed fish to your Neps? What was the result?

    What a horrifying thought. I love my guppies swimming in their tank just fine. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I suppose if you had the stomach and the nose to tolerate the after effects of digestion it could be done. Only things unusual I have fed to Nepenthes so far are big bumblebees (not unusual but new to the Neps) and a small salmander that was found under a pot. Both were easily broken down.

    I wonder if it has to do with the size of the plant and pitcher? because on the UK forum they reported great results with feeding small tropical fish to Nepenthes.

    Any clue what kind of salamander it was?
    If the plant had no problem with that, guppies would be cake. I can't imagine the salamander being smaller than a guppy. In nature, unlucky frogs can be caught by neps(I think Rob Cantley has a pic on his site).
    I looked at the UK thread on this subject, and i was wondering if you put a betta in a huge pitcher(like the 18" truncata from FJM gardens), how long it could survive? The acidity might be a proble, but they gulp oxygen from the surface and their wastes would be absorbed by the pitcher. I was thinking about the other symbionts found in pitchers(like mosquito larvae).

    Regards,

    Joe
