My fish no lie seem to constantly be mowches (sp?) As soon as one gets a feeder partily in its mouth all the sudden outta no where everyone else wakes up and like goes hog wild at the other half if its floating in the water for one second. My piraya just chomped one in half and like four reds went ape nuts over the other half. Just think its funny...

all of my P's do this, it gets me mad sometimes cause the smaller p's will start eating and a bigger one comes by and snatches the rest of the fish. It's like there lazy and dont wanna work to catch there own food... lol

Unless you have a single p in a tank, p's are pack hunters. When one eats they all eat. They do seem very lazy and everyone wants to wait untill one has it in his mouth before they pounce on the feeders or whatever your feeding them. It's just normal behavoir and the most interesting trait that I see in p's.
