Question platy fry and pictus catfish ?

how big do platys have to be in order go into a tank with pictus catfish ? my friend already has 6 adults in a tank with two well feed pictus catfish ... how old do the platy fry have to be before they can leave the nursery tank set up and be put in with the adults and catfish xx

Remember today is the tomorrow that you worried about yesterday

You would have to grow them out in a separate aquarium until big enough they won't fit in the pictus cat's mouth.

Was it, "Tasted Great," or "Less filling"?

Aheh...even well fed ones are able to kill and eat adult platies. Not a good mix, really.

If you want to test that, you'd want the platies to be adults first, or they'll just be lunch...and might be anyways.

Turning on the Aquarium lamp in the morning is MY cup of coffee.
