Well knew they ate dead fish. xD and I won't exactly be short fry with 4 females dropping every month, more when the two drop I have growing start to color up and I pick 2 males and 4 females more to keep...
So perhaps them eating the slow ones would be a blessing in the long run.
I do plan to look for the miniatures, but I haven't seen them locally and the plecos I have found say "can grow anywhere from 3 to 18 inches" so, I'm assuming its just whatever they get in stock lol.
Winter is coming so if it's going to outgrow a 20long before february I'll put off buying one or another month or so.
I just, as mentioned, have /a lot/ of fry coming at me until the females I have finish up their stored sperms packets and was looking for some kind of help keeping the bottom of the tank free of food so I can take a day or two between vacuumings.
I have a local pet store who would take them when they're larger to re-sell, but I don't feel right buying an animal knowing I'm just going to get rid of it, ya know?
anyway, it's 1am and I'm rambling. Thanks guys. ^^
And, does anyone know how to sex them? If I buy more than one I do /not/ want them multiplying down the road.
