They have basically no nutrition, are parasite laden, and with cheap suitble prey avaliable at every pet store why would you even want to?

And they wouldnít eat them because there is no heat signature for them to zone into. They are ambush hunters, and a fish isnít going to go swimming by their hide.

Plus, they just arenít their natural foods - give them rodents, and rodents only.

Fish are even bad for your water dragon. If youíre going to feed ANY animal fish, make sure theyíre silver guppies, silver minnows, and silver goldfish.

These contain less harmful chemicals, and are less likely to break down any essential vitamins in your animalís body. An animal who eats too many orange colored fish has a vitamin defeciency. Trust me, I know what Iím talking about.

Are You guys trying to say I just got my first fish eating RedBelly watersnake and I shouldnít feed it fish? What if I get fish from the krogers deli case like cat fish nuggets? This guy is only like 9 or 10 inches right now. What about bait shop minnows are they safe. Will they eat crickets this small.

i was talking to this lady in the petshop. she said her mom hated mice so she wouldnt let her bring them in the house. she fed her python goldfish. just heat it up so they have some sort of a heat signature and she said it loved the fish. it might work but i dont think they are very nutritionous. you would have to put certaint things into the fish so that the snake gets the right vitamins and what not. that would be too much of a pain just go with mice. this lady was able to do it some how but if you dont have every little thing the snake needs say byebye ball

To answer the question: They can eat fish, I just donít see a CH BP eating a fish. It hard enough trying to get most snakes to switch types of rodents, let alone an entirely different kind of species. If you can do it best of luck and let us know how you did it.

Hey guys It donít matter if they will eat fish or not... I just got done rearranging this watersnake I got tank and he has been eating the gold not orange gold fish. I put him in his deli container and he made a poo poo and when I got ready to put him back in his tank, I popped the lid off and just about did a back flip. Man I thought my sonís farts were bad! Let me just say if that smell is what I got to look forward to this otherwise handsome and friendly watersnake isnít going to be under my roof for long, this lil snake stunk up the house so bad I opened all the windows and stuck fans In them facing out to get rid of that funk. We decided to skip dinner tonite. SSSSHHHHEEEEWWWWWW WWWWEEEEE. Save yourself donít feed your BP fish. Iíll let him keep the swimming pool but heís diffently getting switched to rodents or traded off for something else.
