    Hi peeps,

    Firstly hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.

    Does anyone know if I can feed these critters to my fish ? as I have millions of them in the pond !

    Asellus aquaticus also known as "waterlouse", "aquatic sowbug" and "water hoglouse"

    Cheers

    While it may be fine, I wouldn't run the risk of taking them from the pond to your tank without quarantine. Probably better in the long run just not to do it.

    If its a large pond possibly with fish then I definitely would agree with mojosodope, however if its a little isolated backyard pond that you know exactly what is in it I don't think there is much of a danger.
