The problem with 'nicely fed' is that RTCs live longer and healthier if not fed everyday. I feed mine every other day (after he hit a year old). I'm sure my RTC doesn't like it but, it's necessary for his health.shoefreak03 said:i think it should be fine as long as they are nicely fed. both fishes are too big for common tanks, hope you have a huge tank.
ive seen RTC break glass tanks because they are in small tanks.
Again... Should read "Doesn't mean it will 'today'."
When he was 16", my little RTC ate 4 1-1/2 lb channel cats in a week. Enjoy the group while you can. When the RTC outpaces the aros in growth, it WILL, not may, it WILL eat its tankmates.
My little RTC is now over 2 ft and eats whole 2-3lb crappie and tilapia without effort.
