    Hi! We have a little columbian about 5-6 months old or so. Was wondering what age/size would be appropriate to try some fish in the water bowl, and if anyone had tips on keeping said fish from running out of oxygen and expiring before tegu has some fun? (that sounds so sadistic)

    Unfortunately, pet store feeder fish are a quick way to give your tegu parasites. I wouldn’t personally risk it. You can start feeding fish meat right away, however! :)
