ok, a black convict just stowaway with my feeder guppies. I jsut read they're aggresive and will eat my plants. It's still rather small... so either someone takes it off my hands or I feed it to my turtles. I live in Jersey City, NJ. PM me if you want. The moment I see my tank going to hell from this fish, it's going to my turtles.

i'm sorry,i can't pick him up because i live in australia :bluelaugh:

but may i ask why you guys are encouraging a person to end a fishes life?
:shock:
i mean that one fish could go to a young and keen to learn fishkeeper and grow the hobby evan further.
but then again, i could be going whacko's.
anyone else believe what i am saying?

probably not :(

Convicts are so prolific and on top of that, very aggressive that no hobbyist would probably take a fish like that unfortunately.:shake: An inexperienced person probably will but I hate the idea of a fish suffering on his/her hand instead with gill burns from ammonia, ich and several horrible things.:blueshake: If no one likes a con, then it will have to be fed to the turtles.:)

Convicts are great feeders. If you keep piscivorous fish you probally wont have hard feelings about feeding a small fish to a bigger ones. Turtles will gladly accept fish if they can catch them.
