Hobbit Posted November 23, 2020 Share Posted November 23, 2020 So I know some fish have teeth (like puffers) that are specifically for breaking or grabbing their prey. But do fish have molars or something similar for chewing? Or does everything they can fit in their mouths go down their throat whole? (Like chickens—but even they have a crop half way down their throat for breaking things up.) When my fish eat dry pellets, do they chew those pellets or just swallow them and have them expand in their stomachs? Like my husband’s childhood boy scout troop that ate undercooked couscous? I know that goldfish can get swim bladder issues from eating dry food. Is that because they can’t chew? I’ve seen my gouramis make a chewing sort of motion but I know that things aren’t always as they appear. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
