1 word...... TERNS!!!

Check these guys out. All my terns are finger chasers. The piraya is too, but nothing like the terns. The come right to the glass. Never afraid. IMO,, they are the least shy pygo. I also belive they grow the fastest, although I have just aquired the piraya, but still belive that they will outgrow it with a quickness. The big tern in the pic was bought sept 12th at 3". He is now 6"+. The other terns were purchased a month ago, and have since grown an inch +. They were fed well 1 hour prior to the vid being shot.

sh*t yeah it is. Getting huge quick ehh!!!

And I know this tank is a little crowded, but everything has gone great so far. I purchased 2 of each so that I had a couple to chose from when thinning the shoal. I only got 1 piraya though due to price.

Well, it all depends on how they treat eachother. You know as well as I do with the rate they are growing, the good ole' 100 gal won't hold them ALL forever. I may just wait till you fix that tank. BTW....fix that yet?

I agree with Leasure, Terns rule.

I told you Leasure that the Terns would quickly outgrow any of your other Pygos, their appetite is incredible.

You can have all the cariba you want. I personaly only have them to complete my mix shoal. IMO, cariba suck. they all seem to be very unhealthy lately coming from any sponser. All the cariba recently purchased have had parasites, and little white dots, and tons of black spots under the scales. Piss poor quality.
