      Sounds awesome you "plant" people are really enticing me. Im more than likely getting another tank thinking about going 6 inches wider just for the polys (pearsei and cats will have the current 300) im gonna lean on you and @magpie@magpie to help me decorate it.

      Great tank - love the video of the crew. The dat and gar are gorgeous. And how could I forget about your little flounder in there? :) I am so surprised he doesn't go for a poly tail every once in awhile.

      The flounder is happy to hear that you didn't see him. ;)

      He posted a video of it grabbing a live fish one day and I was totally mesmerized.

      @jaws7777@jaws7777 do it!!!! planted tanks are so much fun! you get to see so many different behaviors from your fish too.

      Ive got a few more videos ill have posted up from this feeding later today, had to download some software to rotate them and try to lighten them up first. The flounder goes for poly fins every now and then, one of the other videos he snaps at a delhezi right at the start. hes a sneaky little beast. If i can find another one of this species i will definitely be picking it up.

      Here's the rest of the feeding videos, had to split into part 1 and part 2 because I gave up on combining them into one. Enjoy!

      @jaws7777@jaws7777 there's a few species of true freshwater flounder out there. Mine is Catathyridium jenynsii one of the larger South American species. Super fun fish!

      So does the flounder eat pellets too? I watched it twice and didn't see it take any.
