RE: leaches & plants



Hi Scott,
I guess if you have species of fish that relish leaches its OK.
I am not aware that any killies will consume leaches.  Perhaps some of the
bigger natives might. 
OTOH, I personally don't like having parasitic leaches wandering around in
my aquariums.  They will proliferate in a tank if left unchecked.

I can see where full grown leeches might be a problem in the fish tank.
But,
what is the harm or benefit of raising them for adult fish food?
