    Sure, a little extra protein. Good for them in fact!

    (Not so good for the spider though :-)

    Unless there was some insecticide on the spider the fish will be fine, having just eaten a nutritious natural snack.

    Unfortunately it's too late to save the spider.

    Fish often eat spiders. This is very common.
