So I bought some convicts to cycle the 65 awhile ago and of course they spawned. Anyways I had ordered a couple EB Jack Dempseys for the 65 through a LFS and moved the convicts to the 29 without thier fry. The EB's took care of all but one of the fry. I have effectivly named it Gollum since he/she is so sneaky staying in the thickest part of my Swords and moving along the line of the driftwood so as to not be detected. Wonder if she will survive or get finally get eaten. Time will tell.

Side note: Convicts have spawned again so I have a fresh batch of live food for the EBs. Once they become free swimming I'll gut load them with BBS and let the EBs have at em.

Yeah the EBs are picky eaters. They love live foods of course and flakes, but give them anything else and they wont touch it. I've tried all sorts of pellets with no luck. People say the grow slow, but mine have doubled if not more in size in less than a month.
