neons 4 dinner oops

ok so i thought just maybe my clarias cat would be far too big, to be able to catch minicule lil neon tetras, so i bought 5 and put them in the tank, all was fine they were swimming happily around my cats head & he wasnt botherd 1 bit :D
until i turned lights off ...next morning we had only 1 neon left
im not 100% it was the cat it may have been a plec?!
so now we have 'random neon' swimming on his lonesom hes been in there alone for 4days now and he seems happy enough i might call him lucky

Hello sazzy,

in my experience pleco's can not eat tetras but suck on them if they are sick or dead.....Thats whent hey can eat them! :D LOL

I believe that your clarias catfish is the fish that killed the tetras. In my books, it says they are aggresive.

If you care for your tetras, you should move them to another tank. if you don't have another tank then you should either buy one or return the tetras back to the lfs.... :(
