Well they came that way. But over the last two months sadly they have all passed away. Just too hard to keep. They must have blood worms or "meat" to eat and even tho I would use a turkey baister to try to get some down to where they liked to hang out, they are slow to eat, they take their time and others in the tank would be too fast for them. They were very cute tho!! not even an inch long each. Thank you for asking tho!!
