    Hi Kris- can fish sometimes be insectivores?

  10. Kris Fenton | Guest

    Yes they can sometimes be insectivores. Some catfish can be Insectivores.

    Insectivorous fishes are a type of carnivores, but they are commonly placed in their own category. In Lake Tanganyika, insectivore fish can be seen close to the waters edge where they feed on insects and insect larvae. Some eat only on insects that have fallen into the water, while others are vigorous jumpers and can catch insects far above the surface. Many insect species place their eggs in the water and the larvae will therefore be aquatic; an easy snack for insectivore cichlids.

    what do you think?
