Warning:Never put SAE with CRS!!


As per title this is a suggestion NOT to put SAE with CRS.....but ok with RCS...Recently I got 3" SAE from local guy along with other fish. Since 1 tank already had SAE so I decided to put it in 75 gal with CRS and RCS...its been 2 week all my CRS are gone. Last week while doing water change I didn't see some of themm thought they were hiding...then I started to watch everyday and today there is not even 1 CRS left. I had some like 75-100 of CRS all those high Quality(as they say sss+. Miro and whatever) But Cheeries are ok. Nothing been changed since last 2 weeks. I was able to catch the SAE and put it to Endlers tank....

So guys watch out...."SAE is EVIL"

Man! I need a good drink tonight

Yeah, the bad thing about CRS is that they're BRIGHT white and red, which in nature means "eat me please"

That sucks man, if it wasn't so hot on the east coast I'd send you some of mine

Was it a true SAE or a Flying Fox? Did it have a fat belly?

Its a true SAE not FF....it significantly gained weight with in last 2 week. Till last Saturday, I was thinking may be there is some kinda invisible algae in the tank which Human eyes can't see and it's eating those algae, Never came across my head that they are delicacy to SAE.

That is a terrible thing to discover my friend. Maybe there are some little ones hiding that avoided the hungry SAE.
