Awsome swordtail activity.
 
I had my two swordtails in my 10G tank; I had a small problem and had to rapidly move them to my 55G "Shark" tank. I figured it would be ok as my swordtails where eating flaks from the top of the tank, and I feed all my sharks’ algae disc from on the bottom of the tank. If any think I figured my 5 bala sharks would keep them away from their end of the tank.

I started to notice that not only will my two swordtails eat their floating flakes they will also swim down and punk the bala's and eat their algae disc also. Right now the balas are only maybe 2 1/2 to 3 inches same size as the swordtails, maybe when the balas are 6 inches they will change their behavior.

This is like my friends little 25lb mutt picking on my 65lb pitbull, well almost :-).
