Some people are getting freshwater mollys and breeding them and feeding the fry to their predator tanks.

Frozen silversides, fresh chopped scallops & small dogs..along with shrimp. I like to give as much as variety as possible. 1 single food source won't contain everything they'll need. Variety gives you a better edge.

My wife was talking to me about this outside cat we had (she kept a freaking litter box outside on our porch for it... and it actually used it). She said, "once I get pregnant you'll have to take care of the cat." Which immediately got the hahahahaha yeah right look. Then she says the best cat line ever... "cat poop and scratches can kill babies."

Case closed for me. Cats kill babies. Enough said.

Oh... btw... my wife is pregnant, and we no longer have a cat!

Dam...so let me guess.. the cat was a Tom cat...and he Looooved upon your wife.... you aren't to be blamed at all... yeah sure I can hear it now in a few years time........
"Daddy where did I come from?" as little coral keeper looks up at Daddy

"Well Duncan (yeah you see the addiction here don't you) you see... Mummy..oops sorry she's American... Mommy was stroking this big Tom cat, and he was happy... very happy with Momma's stroking... so he purred...and a little while later you were born"

Child walks away thinking "Shit, thank the gods I wasn't called Frog Spawn!!!"
