Someone asked me the other day about setting up an aquarium for predatory fishes...Pike Chiclids...She had a really cool idea planned out and the tank will be amazing.

Once I got out of the typical male post-pubescent sadistic period, the thought of feeding fishes to other fishes just makes me...uncomfortable. I mean, even the term "feeder guppy" is just kind of depressing to me. (click to read more)
