    Can I Put Newborns With My Other Fry?

    I wouldn't dare...   Anyway, just to share... do you know that a small Neon Tetra actually eats guppy fries? And she can actually gulp more than 10 in a minute? Trust me.

    My Paddlefish

    Yup she';s in a big pond now... and she is camera shy.. After 6 months, she has grown to about 9 inches now (guesstimate). She seems healthy and happy but to this date, I haven't seen her eat anything...

    My Paddlefish

    Thanks! She's 7 inches long, paddle included. My trusted importer says she eats tubifex and blood worms... Its her 2nd day in my tank. I haven't seen her take anything yet but she seems to enjoy tailing and "sniffing" a feeder livebearer.
