I have read in a few places that you shouldn't feed your octo freshwater fish. I was wondering why that was. The only thing I could come up with was the possibility of them being raised in Copper treated water.
Is the rule the same for ghost shrimp as well?

with no nutrients its a wonder how everything that eats freshwater fish as their only diet lives at all.

Its not because the fish have no nutrients in them, but rather, the nutrients in them are inadequete for cephs.Copper treated water is also one of the reasons.
