Believe me, I know. I've had to rescue 2 feeders that hid in my friend's cichlid tank long enough that they couldn't be eaten. I've got them with my fantail Xerxes in a 15 gallon. I know it's overstocked, but I keep up with the water changes and maintenance. The nitrate reading skyrockets after just 2 days, so it's 25% water changes every other day. They're a pain in my rear, but they're great for relieving stress, and they're beautiful in their own right.
