I moved 17 fry between 1/2" to 3/4" from my breeding net to a 10Gal community tank that had some Tetras a small Pleco and some Danios and well, they are little Gremlins because they have eaten my Pleco, both of my Neon Tetras and two of my Danios.

All of these were adult fish. I have done the same with Yellow Labs (10) and Pundamilia Neyerei's (5) and they were even bigger than these Mbamba's and never had a problem.

These have been in there for maybe a week.

The funny thing is the profiles says these fish are Herbivores, not even Omnivores.

Anyone else think this is odd?

I think it is odd... I have L. mbamba fry mixed in with OB peacock fry and everyone gets along great. In my main tank the adults keep to themselves... ok maybe the dominant male chases some others but my BN pleco is fine :?

The fry ate the adults. I have a second brood that I was cosidering adding with the first brood (same species) now I am not so sure.

Who knows, they like eating fish!
