Stupid feeders: too proud to get killed by piranha's, so it's harakiri (sp?) for them


One remark: a sliced and diced feeder seems pretty messy to me: I'd keep a close eye on the water perimeters, since those pieces are probably too small to bother your piranha's, and would start decaying...
Just a tip :smile:

Thats true.. sliced or half eatten feeders that are dead and just floating around should be removed ASAP(food are no exception). They do tend to mess with water perimeters and can kill your Ps with no signs of stress in a matter of time.

My homies Red Devil was a tough and hardy fish that looked like a champion. Always bought 50 feeders for him to eat, and usually gets stuck in the externals, prefilters and in between rocks.. too lazy till water starts smelling up the room. One day it was fine.. next morning it was dead as roadkill.

yeah make sure to use the strainer it comes with, that will help, it happened to me when I first got one, I couldnt find the feeders and there were no Ps yet, well eventually I looked from below and notice orange in the bottom of the phead, well they were crushed up into the intake

thats kinda funny/ the feedrs coming out in chunks. i'm just picturing it in my head. But make sure you clean those chunks, dont want them to decay and crap in yo tank.

why not cover the water intake bit with a sponge, or a net?
