Okay so I will be getting my tegu tuesday and I am wonering if seafood is okay to feed them? My family is a seafood loving family so it's easy for me to get. I was thinking tuna, salmon, and crabs for him since that is what I have at my disposal. Plus I love keeping fish so I could always feed live feeder fish(not goldfish). Any comments?

I feed mine tuna, shrimp, albacore,.. loves it. The smell gets him very active the minute I put him in the feeding bin.

I breed fish and therefore have an abundance that could be used as food...

I talked to Bobby last year pretty thoroughly on that topic and he suggested that I put a 40% cap on fish as a food source... yet suggested it would be good up to approx that point...

My girl has eaten many a Cichlid in the last year or so... and seems to enjoy them thoroughly...

I love cichlids!

I was thinking of breeding convicts for my angelfish and now I can do it for my tegu too. Plus I have a hybrid african I have to get rid of :twisted:

I feed mine tilapia. I tried giving him fresh feeder fish and he wasn't into it too much.

I've fed talipia, salmon and salmon guts? (dads a fisherman) tuna, catfish - not too much because they are bottom feeders, and some shrimp.

Does it matter if it’s cooked shrimp from the store? Like I didn’t cook it with seasoning or anything it’s just not raw ? Is this ok ?
