I'be have hade quite a few of these fish.

I keped 3 fish (2 males 1 female) in a 4' tank and feed them mainly on live fish, although i had trained the female to eat frozen fish.

As long as all was well feed you can keep all together happily, but the female will eat the male if hungery.

Breeding is quite easy and the female produces from every 4-5 weeks (between 50-100 fry) this is a problem as you can not raise all fry.....

I breed convicts cichlids to feed my pike but you need 100's of fish to keep these going.

Feeding frozen help but not very good for the fish.


My article on raising the fry

i had the same experience as alan. hundreds of fry each month of 2 females. i was breeding mollies and convicts by the thousands just to keep these fish fed. and as the fry grow they need live food also. i could never get any of them to feed on frozen or dried. also they do not sell well. i was getting 50p per 1.5" fry. i eventually sold them on. they were taking up several tanks not including the food fish.
if you have the room and food availability then they are a great fish to keep.
