    Re: Do NOT feed Goldfish. A Must read for fish-eating snake keepers!

    Both this thread and the one with the diet have been stuck. Thank you so much for these two very valuable threads.

    there is lots of info on garters yet most do not say types of fish that are safe, but they go off to mention that there is types of fish they should not be fed.

    Re: Do NOT feed Goldfish. A Must read for fish-eating snake keepers!

    I have an important news bulletin.... I was misinformed!!! SILVERSIDES are NOT a true smelt, and do NOT contain thiaminase. SO, they actually are safe for our snakes to consume. I am one happy camper because my snakes really really LOVE silversides and I was so upset when I was told they had thiaminase in them. If someone could please allow me to edit the post and change my article I would greatly appreciate it!!!

    i recall a lake in florida that had a mass aligator die off due to the only forage being gizzard shad that are high in thiaminace.

    Thanks for the post. Back in the late 80s, I had a garter that I hand-fed goldies to. Although it eventually died, it wasn't from the goldies.

    Re: Do NOT feed Goldfish. A Must read for fish-eating snake keepers!

    Well, this post leaves me greatly frustrated and confused. I was told to stay away from goldfish, but minnows were alright, and guppies were bad (high in fat, low in protein, or so I was told). Reading this leaves me confused and annoyed since the minnows I bought are evidently the bad kind ($10 for 3 dozen. Ow.).

    That and it leaves me back at square one of having no food source for my watersnake. Since he's small (roughly a foot) I now have no idea what to fed him since most of the information I've read/been told conflicts, except for the goldfish bit.

    So what do I feed?
