I bought 3 baby rbp's last week, about 1/2 inch in length.
At first they were in my 55 gal with my pet goldfish Dick, and gorge (horhay). The babies started a little fin nipping, so I took the pet goldfish out. I replaced them with some smaller goldfish (about 1.5-2"). I was surprized to see them disappear!
I was feeding the p's brine shrimp since I got 'em, but they seem to be pretty hearty killers at such a young age. My first round with rbp's they didn't seem that vicious. Any one else have some baby killers on the loose?

Pretty exciting isn't it.

Sounds like you are doing something right. They might be very comfortable in the environment you have them set up in. Good work

when i got my 2 smaller reds at about 3'' and added them with my lager @ 6'' reds and 2 convicts they chased the cons around for about a day non stop they didn't catch them and i gave them to a friend ,they had lived with the larger reds for a few months ,they seemed to have calmed down now but i have not had anything live in with them since ,i may treat them to a few goldfish but you have to pay top dollar for them in the uk as you cant buy feeders like the usa @ $2 each and your not supposed to feed live over hear animal rights or something like that

I threw in a comet that was probaly 3 inches longer than my baby spilo, he beat the hell out of it for a couple days, then finally killed it off, pretty amusing to watch.

Yep, my four 2inch rb's kill two and three comets a day that are bigger than they are. It's pretty cool to watch and they love to leave the head just laying there with no eyes. It's pretty sweet! I think that the water temp has something to do with how aggresive they are. I keep my water at about 81 degrees.
