Hi folks,

Will lepto's hunt fry?

I'm thinking of getting a small school of around 10 when I upgrade my Brevis pair to a 44G but am worried that the lepto's will eat the fry.

What do you mean by "lepto's" ?
If you mean Lepidiolamprologus which one are you asking about?
Or are you asking about Cyps? None jubmos are pretty safe with shelly fry.

Petty Cyp fry is not always safe from the shellies though. Nor are the adult Cyps totally happy in a 44g long term unless its very long.
