    Thank you, it was very interesting to know that there are more or less cannibalistic species.

    Here's hoping I can keep all of them to maturity and breeding size...
    I just went through this entire thread and did not see anyone respond to the Lucy, Fred, Ethel, and Desi reference. Maybe because it should be Lucy and Ricky Ricardo, Fred and Ethel Mertz. That was a really funny show. Still remember the candy packing line episode.

    It should be what I named them; Lucy and Desi were a pair in real life and the names were suggestions from my mother, didn't need to match the show perfectly. Matters not in the end since all the survivors turned out male and I no longer have that species however.
