Default Fish roe for feeding A. Maculatum larvae

I think everyone will find this interesting. I caught 3 flathead catfish last night. Small ones 5,6, and 8 pounders. While cleaning 2 of them I found them to be full of eggs. One had pretty large eggs a 1/3 of a salmon egg in size while the other one had very tiny eggs. So I took some of the tiny eggs and put them in with my larvae. And what did I see? Mac larvae going nuts and gulping them down very quickly. I have fed the larger eggs to my Axies, Paddletail, and Notophthalmus newts. Even my Blue Tongue skinks are crazy for them.

Not to steal your thunder but the exact same scenario has been posted before, though I don't think it was catfish. Still, nice to know.

Default Re: Feeding A. Maculatum larvae

You could culture your own eggs very easily. You just breed your own fish. Convict Cichlids are easy they lay their eggs on black slate that you could then transfer into your newt or larvae tanks. Im sure these energy packed eggs would be good for growth and conditioning. And you could do it in a 10 gallon tank. I know a small 2 inch felmale would give u about 50 -150 eggs. breeding them is a no brainer just put them in and feed them some fish flakes. They do the rest.
