More of vultures gruesome work in the same 4500 gal. These victim fish died of natural causes (not killed by vultures or any other tank mate) and are different from the above fish but coincidentally too are a sun catfish (17") and grey eeltail catfish (plotosus canius, 30"):

(parental discretion)

Our vulture 5-pack has been growing, with the biggest one or two now clearly over 24", might be even closer to 30", and the smallest around 24". With age and size, they seem to engage more into their dismemberment habits of tank mates under stress, especially newly introduced, and tank mates that have just died.

More vulture dental work on fish that were placed into their 4500 gal absolutely perfect and healthy, thriving, with all fins intact and beautiful and not a scratch on them.

Over a couple of days on a 2' juruense catfish, which almost killed it, and in minutes on a 2' iridescent shark catfish.
