Re: Killies Diet in the Wild
Still about the ants.
I believe that the author is not wrong at all, once rivulins are able to go out of the water to eat, or just stay there, because they seem to really enjoy it. Fishes of the genus Rivulus, inhabit shallow and muddy pudlles, flooded by the rivers, and can move to neighbour pudlles jumping out of the water. they are also insectivorous ( is this right?) and eat terrestrial insects. So, once again, I believe that: the ants that they eat must be species that would not harm them, probably the ones that don`t harm us either: and also, that their diet is not restrict to ants. Maybe it`s just because they are much more abundant than other groups.
One more thing, Rivulidae is a South American family, they don`t occur in Africa.
