1: I really like them, they are so hardy and fed like pigs

2: they are a little big for my blood Parrots mouth. So i figured they will pair of and i'll feed the new fry to my Parrots and angels and what ever i get in the future.

The dorsal fins will kill the fish if the con is too large. My O actually choked on my female con when he swallowed it.

How big is too big for a convict to get ate ?
