Whoa, never seen his thread... well I guess I'll take part in it.

1. Kyle

2. Have had tanks for 12 years, really got hooked in the past 5 years (when I bought my first pair of convicts, that spawned the next day)

4. 3

5. 2x Cr. regani (orinoco), 1x Cr. proteus

6. The regani eat brine, mysis, blackworms, and ghost shrimp. The proteus eats pellets. I feed them as many times as I see them (1-3 times a day)

7. Couple of hours for the proteus, a few minutes for the regani

8. Cr. proteus has gone from 2.5" - 8" in 3 years, regani have gone from 2" - 4" in 1.5 years

9. I love Cr. cincta, one of the best pikes I ever had, just too big at the time

10. proteus is in a 300, regani are in a 75
