I've been trying various frozen foods with my little bimac, Andy. She's refused scallops, mussels, shrimp and crab so far. I tried putting the thawed food in an old snail shell and she was so mad at me for tricking her she hid in the back of the tank for two days, normally she is very friendly. On my quest to find a readily accessible cheap food, my local bait shop guy suggested squid, apparently it is like candy to most fish. I tried it and she loves it!! My question is whether it is a healthy primary food source? Also it seems kind of cannibalistic to give her another cephalopod. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
