Default Stupid question about feeding fish

Just wondering if it's ok to feed tuna fish? Here comes the stupid part, the canned variety (that you mix with mayo to make sandwiches), is that cooked? Or would I have to cook it in a pan before feeding?

I dont know if it is all right but I bet it will be pretty smelly coming out the other end.

Yes you can feed tuna. in moderation. Canned tuna is VERY high in.... mercury (is that it?). Also, if you are going the canned route (which many people will shake their head at) it should be packed in water & not brine.

Hedgehogs + fish in the diet = stinky (and often messy) poop. Heads up on that
