When I came to feed my fish this morning my second largest Demasoni male went into one of the caves and came out with a yellow tail hanging out of his mouth! He did indeed corner and consume my smallest Labidochromis(yellow lab) I bought a group of 15 from @punman a few weeks ago in the 3/4"-1" size. He threw in 1 extra very small fry incase 1 died. I kept them in a breeder net for a few weeks to feed them without competition from my other fish. They were added to my main tank 4dys ago. So my questions are why are my herbivorous Mbuna hunting small fish? am I under feeding? Could my Demasoni become sick from eating small fish? Now that he has a taste for fish will he kill again? Any comments or help with this are appreciated Thank You
Hi everyone! I'm new here, but not to fish keeping. Although, I've been tankless for about 8 years now. I know, shameful! I live in Kelowna, BC, with my ever patient wife and two awesome teenage girls. I'm 47 years old and addicted to mbuna! Sounds like an AA meeting. Hey, I guess it kinda is! I'm just finishing up setting up a new 75 gallon, mostly all male mbuna tank, after convincing my wife I won't go crazy this time with raising fry, grow out tanks.... When I had them last, I was selling more to the stores than I ever bought! hehe As a kid, I had at one time about 6 tanks go'n at once and dug my own koi pond, with cheap help from friends and family. Hey, no one complained too much! Anyway, here I go again with my addiction! Thanks to Harold, Fairdeals. Sounds like he'll be able to set me up with most of the mbuna left on my wish list! Good guy you got here! Can't wait to get them in my set up! Very patient also, while I yapped his ears off the other night! Sorry about that, Harold. Later, Nolan, KTM
