So the other day I noticed small ants along the top of my tank. I really didn't think anything of it. One night I noticed all my fish in one corner making a big ruckus. I lifted the lid and all these ants poured into the tank, eggs and all. I cleaned them all out and fish seem okay other than no more excitement. But is it okay if they eat ants if they come back?

I don't know if it is bad for them to eat ants or not. I would assume that would be fine but I do know if you spray chemicals to get rid of the ants and it gets in the fish tank it will kill all the fish. I learned that the hard way by Spraying a little bit on a net in my garage and then months later dipping the net into the tank and killing all my fish. From what I understand the fish cannot take any pesticide.

Thanks for the replies. They are gone but it the ants were gone the fish were lite.ley jumping out of the tank to get at the ants. I used a sweetened chemical they ate and killed the queen and eggs. I was so nervous they would fall in and get eaten. Just when though thought you seen it all with Mbuna!
