Make sure your tank has no open area and/or anything that the mouse can crawl up on and end up missing somwhere in your house. Let us know what happens man!!! Take pix too

Since you brought up something missing in my house, i am looking for a 4" crayfish that i have been missing for 2 weeks. It crawled out of my tank overnight and i still cant find it.

Regarding the mouse question, since it is their first time encountering a mouse, would it be smart to start them off something small like a hopper or a pinkie?

I would try a pinky man.. just for starters. they'll be more likely to be eatten quick and less trouble to clean to begin with..

Well i just fed the mouse and they didnt attack it when it was alive. Instead they were fighting each other. When the mous finallyu drowned the RBs were the fist to nip at it then the Caribe came and ate all of it. I think im going to try a bigger one in a few days. I think i rushed this process because i knew the Caribe were still full and wasnt hungry/starving. Wish me luck.

Since they killed and ate the mouse so fast then you should of had a camera rolling and made a little video out of it.

I dont know how to video and but it on the net. I fed them a hopper i think? It was something small with fur and a nice tail. I think it was 3-4" big.

How big should your Ps be before feeding them mice? I've been wondering. They tear apart large feeders now, but I don't want to do anything that's not good for them.
