    O' crud I mean Amazon...hehehe Then I guess that would not be a factoid. I really mean Amazon...my fault should really watch what I type. Never pays to ru$h. As I am sure that will not be my last typo error. Darn it!

    uh oh...my pacu is now 8 3/4 in. long, 4-5 in. tall, and over an inch wide! My mom actually feels sorry for the poor thing, so do I. he bumps against the glass when he makes feeding spurts and just plays around, so my parents are thinking about getting him a 55 gallon aquarium! or get rid of him [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] he's like a best freind. he eats out of my hand, very gently, sometimes splashes me with water, and actually looks at me throught the glass. I would hate it if we got rid of him. hes like a little brother. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] I'd say he has about one or two months before he grows out of the tank. If my parents don't pay for a new aquarium, I'll have to spend all of my cp money for the year. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] but I don't want to get rid of him, so I guess that's what I have to do. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] I guess parents don't understand that kind of stuff [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] well, at least I might be able to move all of my fish to the new aquarium, and use the old one to make a terrarium! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] hmmmmmm.... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    I have to throw my 2 cents in here, on the whole feeding live fish to other fish. I don't like it, and no... it's not because you are killing the feeder fish, it's because:

    1) Your typical feeder fish (goldfish) are not even a naurally occuring species and have round about no nutritional value therefore a really bad choice for fish food.. it would be kind of like you trying to stay healthy on spam.

    2) Feeder fish are prone to disease. Horribly prone to disease. The most common and rampant is tail and fin rot, followed very closely by mouth fungus. Both of these eat throught the affected tissue, and sometimes the bone resulting in disfigurement and or death. Not exactly something you want to introduce into your tank. As for feeder guppies, see all of the above,(with the exceptions of being naturally occuring, they were at one point, and they have a slightly higher nutritional value) and then add rampant infections of almost every conceiveable kind.
    I typo, therefore I edit.
