Hey guys,

I feed my piranha's a lot of fish and kept reading about the effects of thiaminase and why it's so bad. Obviously we want to feed our fish the best diet possible and freaked me out a bit that I might be actually giving them something that is bad for them. After a lot of research I found the website below which states the effects and lists all fish that don't contain thiaminase. So these days I only buy fillets that are on the no list - been feeding hake, salmon and cod recently. The site has put my mind at ease anyway and just thought I'd post it here cos it might help someone else. Now the effects of thiaminase might be over exaggerated and i'm not an expert on the matter but I would just prefer to stay clear from the stuff altogether. And my p's have been loving the hake and salmon.

Thanks ski, very interesting read, might explain why my adult aro has being increasingly jumpy and not eating well over the last 3 to 4 months. Im feeding thawed out frozen prawn. I'll change to cod or haddock.

No problem Paul, glad you found it useful. I used to feed my aro the same as well.

Yeah I'm finding that out alright Ger. I'm only going to be using it as a treat or for the feeding just before a water change
