Fed my Betta a spider...

Today i found a weird looking spider in my basement. It was small, and grey. I live way up north in Minnesota, and it is cold right now so finding spiders is really rare because of the cold, so there are barely any spiders. I got very excited and decided to feed it to my betta. lol.

I cut its long legs off. After i cut all its legs off it was still alive, i threw it into my tank. It started to twitch in the water. My Betta gobbled it up in like 2 seconds, and it looked like he loved it.

OK now for my question... Is it safe to feed my Betta spiders?

ohmygosh hahaha how's he doing? I wondered the same thing. Flushed the spider instead of feeding it to my little shark.

That... sounds creepy. I don't think I would have been able to rip apart the limbs of a spider and then throw it in while it was still alive. I won't even touch one. xD

However, I do think the betta must have loved it. I'm sure if a fruit fly passed over my tank and there was no lid, he'd leap up and gobble it up right away.

Lol my boyfriend feeds gnats to his betta cause he always finds them by his plants, and his betta loves them. I think it's a pretty natural thing for them to eat.
