Just got him to finally accept meal worms, he ate about 5 giant ones in 2 minutes :) which is awesome for him! Before this he only ate silversides so I'm really happy right now:)

Ok so my small school of neons disappeared, and i didnt know if they got sucked in the filter or my bichir ate them so I replaced them with a small school of tiger barbs, and early today I caught my bichir in action. It was around 2 in the morning and I couldn't sleep so I looked at my fish tank which had the moonlight on the lowest level. It was crazy to watch him hunt, they don't bull rush there fish like an oscar. They kinda drift next to the fish, creeping very slowly, trying not to call attention to themselevs, and then when they're about 2 inches away they shoot quickly and strike. And once that catch the fish they death roll like 3 times then swallow whole. They weren't intended to be feeders but now I only have 4 of 6 left. I guess at least they're better than goldfish

I didn't expect it to happen but I was prepared for it to happen. Lol My bichir swims a lot but I didn't think he would be quick enough to catch a tiger barb. Although I've read tons of stories of bichirs eating goldfish I guess I didn't think mine would be fast enough for a barb. One of those things I had to see to believe, But now I know for the future, you live and learn. :)
