View Full Version : Guppy or Molly Fry as lunch for Fiddlers

Can Fiddler crabs catch and/or eat guppy or molly fry? I want them to have a nice treat in addition to their everyday crab pellets and occasional freeze-dried krill. And i have 6 female mollies that are always pregnant, so i can have a near constant supply of newborns for them if it will work. :)

they can, but its unlikely i had dropped a few of my mollie fry in for my fc but now i have grown up brackish water mollies :s they only managed to catch 1 of the babies before they got bigger.

try crickets they like them better i find

I believe if they can catch it they will eat it.
They are scavengers so at least they will try. I don't know how fast mollies are though but scavengers are pretty creative and funny when they try to catch food. I bought 10 ghost shrimp for my crayfish and in two months he's knocked the population down to one.. So hopefully it goes the same for your crab.

Hm. Guess ill save a few from my next batch and see what happens. It took a long time to get answers on here... Guppies cant live in brackish though... Guess ill use mollies. :)
