I wonder how these guy live in the wild, i'm pretty sure it isn't as clean or as stable as the tank I'm keeping them in.
On another note: This remind me of the time when I was trying to breed guppies, & I did everything to the "T" in keeping my tank in prestige condition; clean water, good food, etc.. But for some reason they either kept on dying or get all short of diseases. I finally gave up and went on vacation to asia. There, I saw a guy who kept them in a dirty algae grown 20"x20" styro foam box. to my amazement there were like hundreds of them healthy and swimming around like crazy. I ask him what's his secret was & he told me, "nothing, I just threw them in there and they multiply like crazy eating the algae." I came home 2 month later and my fish tank was dirty/black even (due to the filter clogging & my brother not cleaning it) and all the food from my automatic feeder fell into the fish tank. And guess what.... I ended up with 30 new healthy gubbies. so i was like WTF...
