Alright, so last week while I was away, the bichir ate another congo tetra. I have decided to move the bichir to the big fish tank, but since I'm going away this week too, I just moved it to a quarantine tank. So now I don't have to grow fish out in quarantine tanks before I can put them in the 90.

No, they aren't diggers - they stalk and ambush their prey. It's a full 8 inches long so it would take a lot of blackworms. Im sure it would like a nice fat nightcrawler. I feet it about 7-10 NLS thera A pellets - 3 mm size.

Yeah, petsmart sells them really small. Actually, I don't think I've ever seen large senegals for sale. Really neat fish - I'm sure your friend will enjoy it.

Bichirs are really pretty fish. Too bad they get so big. Other wise I would get one.

You have 4 male Boese... getting any females? They will need a mop to spawn on but they will do it if given the chance. Mine do!! I have 2 males and 4 females in my 75.

That is one AWWWWWWesome tank mate!!

EDIT: Sorry that was in reference to Post 28 and the video preceding it.

Poor Ranbow! A wise move, to be sure... I'm sure he'll fare much better on his own. Which tank will he be getting?

PetMainia - no doubt about it - they're GORGEOUS animals!

I'd be tempted, but I know that I'm too much of a softie to keep the more agressive animals. They really are stunning, though - and fascinating, behaviorally-speaking. . . I'm more than happy to watch and learn from across the screen!

Thanks, Jaysee - always good to hear what's going on over there! Got anymore eye-candy for me (I/E photos!)??? I'd love to see the villain in question!
