food for other fish
not likelygunk said:If I take the fry away and use them as feeder fish every time a pair of convicts breed, will they eventually become too stressed out from having their fry continually stolen from them?
That would be pushing it for size, besides, depending on what pike you get, he will easily keep that con stock to a minimum. My orange pike was a terminator, at 4", it ate twice as much as my 8" red devil and was ruthless on smaller fish, reminded me of a dangerous mbuna.gunk said:Well in a 40g tank will that method work? Won't the convicts go after just about everything else? I want to stock my new 40g with the convicts, a small-medium sized Jack Dempsey, a Pike, and maybe another fish. I feel like I wouldn't be able to keep the harmony with crazy convicts patrolling the tank.
2 petco's by me take fish I've brought them 4 or 5 blue acara and lots of convicts. They put my acara in their display tanks with green terorr. The rest of my fish are being taken by people that work there.AU Chief said:I've never heard of Petco taking fish before. I know its against company policy for them to do so, unless its a rescue type situation. weird.
