Larger fish eat guppies. Oscars, cichlids, etc.

I feed my African Clawed frog feeder fish, but they're rosie reds. I imagine she'd also eat guppies if they aren't much bigger. I like the feeder fish over the food pellets because of the water quality - she makes SUCH a mess with the pellets.

Well, guppies are smaller, neater, and breed like rabbits. So they are a good feeder .

Minnows are used, too.

Yes,I give my turtle minnows every now and again,but they are hard to find here.

Goldfish are actually higher in fat and protein and so guppies and minnows are better as feeders too.

Very true! Goldfish seem more likely to be carrying diseases as well. I never feed them to anything.
