I have a pair of Kribensis that mate like crazy and constantly have a brood. The problem is, the male decides the fry taste good after a week or two and eats all of them. So, this past batch my son and I sucked em out of the tank with a siphon hose and fed them to my Bloodfin tetras and Bolivian rams. Man, they were like Pirahna. Wifey says Im evil and I shouldve left them with the parents. :angel::icon_twis:wink:

yeah free food is good food. Circle of life yada yada, people have no problem buying feeder fish or shrimp & your's are getting eaten anyway (whole different issue), so why not? It's not like you named them all after the mom & just the one Nemo right?

My cory cats lay eggs all the time in my home tank. When I showed my wife the first time she asked what I was going to do with them. I told her I could ether let them be or setup another tank to house them. She thought they'd make good fish food after I said that.

Right on. Easy for them to see the light when you start talking about yet another tank.

My wife says the same thing when she sees me dressed in camo leaving with my AR-15 to go hunt cattle on the ranch up the road. Those cattle want to be shot and butchered. Tasty steaks are their destiny.
That just put a whole new spin on going cow tipping...

The whole cattle thing cracked me up! Especially the confusion over why he'd wear camo in the first place... : )
