IT has to do with the certain fish you feed. Some fish such as goldfish, roseys (the smaller, slimmer goldfish), comets, minnows, as well as any fish in the carp family contain thiaminase, an amino acid chain that breaks down thiamine which the snakes need. I have heard boiling the fish will break the protein down, but I normally just give mine mice with a lesser influence on fish in their diet. This is supplemented with nightcrawlers as well. Some fish contain less amounts of thiamine, such as trout. I would search the forum...there is a ton of info posted on here as well as some websites that have information on which have the smallest amounts. Andy
