Yeah I know right!? I pay a lot more attention to pet food ingredients than I used to...

Same with Bettas the first ingredient has to be meat.

Please do not be affended I am just speaking from studies and expierence.
I don't know where you're from but why don't you study the US before making assumptions. For one we are NOT a democracy, never were, we are and always have been a republic. You should know most studies are completely asanine and are only based off of a few fools that actually participate in them. Most Americans know the government is full of it, and simply do not care where a puppy is from. We are consumers and capitalists and only care about the ends not the means.

And the grim truth the world does not want to hear is without us to supply them with customers the world economy would go to heck in handbasket. Also that we've done more in 200 years than most coutries have done in a thousand. Yet the world thinks we're stupid, isn't that the proverbial pot.......no offense.


Also to the original poster; fiddler crabs can live in freshwater as they are brackish, which means they live in tidel areas where there usually both present. While they prefer salt water, they can live just fine in fresh. My niece still has her crab and he is doing amazingly well, hence why I say the myth is the myth.

No they are genetically modified. They have supersonic hearing and can hear the faintest noise from miles away. They also can kill an adult human being with one strike, but normally choose not to. The way they do this is from incredibly strong laser beams that they shoot from their eyes, and they have incredible aim. They can also give off very strong radioactive gamma rays, so don't stand with your head too close to the tank for too long...
