Fish Learn Quick!

Hey guys today I was taking my fry out of the breeder and putting them in my 30 gallon so they don't die from stunned. So I was really nervous putting them in because I spent 4$ on 4 fry and I was scared they would have got eaten but I took my chances.

As soon as I put them in all my fish started chasing them trying to eat them. The fry were too fast for the fish to get a hold of them. After 5 minutes all the fish stop chasing the fry knowing they couldnt catch them. Now they all live happy in the 30 gallon together.

You got ripped off for sure. I could have given you a bagful of platy fry for $4.
