      I've seen a bunch but just can't seem to have a tank that would be suitable...well without it being ripped to shreds.

      Do they pellet train?

      He’s in a planted 40 breeder.
      He will eat floating pellets but they’re not his favorite.
      He will also eat dried super worms and tubifex oh he loves a red worm or crawler.
      Usually gets those mostly in the summer months.
      His diet is usually a couple chunks of tilapia and some mix of the other things I’ve listed
      I don’t know what he was being fed before I got him.
      I assume probably feeders. But since I’ve had him he’s not had any live feeders.

      I have, he watched them sink and once they hit the bottom he lost interest and swam away.
      He will get the floating because they bounce around and eventually he takes them.
      I don’t put more then a few at a time because he doesn’t eat them readily.

      Here is my 5 incher as promised

      Now I tell you what, I once saw an 8 incher that had been donated along with a large oscar which had been raised up with him. If they could have been taken seperately I would have gotten him, he was absolutely beautiful and I regret not being able to get him...

      Mine eats pellets, frozen krill and red crawlers. I know that mine was wild caught. Most are bred commercially nowadays.

      I think mine is weird since he will only eat pellets off of the bottom of the tank, he’s like a big cory.

      Here's mine. He's a couple years old and about 5 - 5 1/2". He's in my 135 gallon. He's camera shy so hard to get a good picture of him.
