    I am with neps on this one. If you keep fish and one dies(as they sometimes do), why not? I could almost understand if you used a bait fish like a minnow(as they are essentially doomed anyway)-but despite that, 30 hours to die seems a bit cruel.
    To each his own, I guess.

    30 hours to die maybe is not cruel as you imagine.Probably the pitchers noticed the presence of something and has dissolved some enzimes in order to let the fish loose orientation...
    We could not know...

    Hi,

    I guess things like this so called experiment appeal to some people, but thankfully it is good to see that there are others that are of another opinion. Still, the N. truncata looks nice.

    Regards,

    Christer

    Ive heard reports of the Pitchers Fluids being very distastefull...

    ITs either the People tasting it, or the difrence in species...

    My only argument is how is a fish going to get into a pitcher in the wild? I can understand a small rat and the millions of insects... but... w/e floats youre boat

    Dunno.

    THe only thing i have to say about the sarr's is its possible for newts to get into S. purpurea in bogs in NY... The water rises the newt finds a moist spot... im sure you got the rest from their..

    Does it smell preaty rank now?

    Cheers

    Why did you choose a gourami of all fishes Did you know that VERY few fish possess a breathing organ called a labyrinth? Betas and gouramis are the only 2 species of fish that I am aware have this additional internal organ. The labyrinth makes it possible for the fish to get much of its oxygen from above the water surface in addition to extracting through its gills as most other fish do. Because this gourami was able to survive in an oxygen-depleted setting by breathing from the surface, it prolonged its suffering. Next time, just use pre-killed animals sold at all pet stores that were terminated humanely.

    Hey Mr. Aga:

    Interesting experiment. I was wondering whether you could have used a goldfish instead of a gourami. In general goldfish are the cheapest fish around

    Hi Nepenthes_ak,
    Why I have given a fish to the truncata? Simple..because it's flesh is nearly free of fat and it is rich of proteins.
    Sure...it is something against the nature's willen but it has been only an experiment. I know other people that lives in USA and that have given fishes to their plants.
    The fish actually does not smell bad....because it is all under the fluid...
    Bye!
