BlueLineAquaticsSC Posted February 19, 2022 Share Posted February 19, 2022 I have a cichlid tank which is also home to a Sengal Bichir. I like to feed my Bichir feeders every once in a while and at first I would get 2 dozen and they would last about 4-5 days. Then my cichlids got big enough to start eating some and they would last for 3-4 days. That was all working fine until my most recent fish, the only cichlid not from CA, a striped Venezuelan Pike Cichlid. I had no idea this fish could be a bigger pig than the Bichir but he sucks downs those fish and puts them I don’t know where. 2 dozen know lasts me about 6 hours. The last time I saw the pikes belly was very swelled up and you could see the outlines of the fish in his stomach, and he still had 4 feeders hanging out his mouth. Is this bad, I’ve always heard rumors fish would eat themselves to death but I always thought people actually dumped whole containers of food in their tank and ruined the water. If I buy less feeders the Bichir will simply not get any. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
