 You  are  correct  puniet  but  on  the  contrary  I  would  prefer  having  RTG  with  some  other  fish  which  would  have  a  low  profile  and  be  a  target  rather  than  FH.
 
 Just  think  about  the  tank's  status  when  all  five  FH  reach  atleast  10".  
 IMHO  the  main  problem  with  having  more  than  one  similiar  CA  cichlid  is  that  they  never  be  in  harmony  at  any  point  of  time.  And  having  them  with  the  RTG  will  always  be  like  having  my  heart  in  my  mouth  and  waiting  for  the  inevitable  .
 
 But  as  Mahek  as  mentioned  that  it  is  a  4.2  feet  tank  they  might  be  a  bit  disciplined  for  atleast  a  month  or  two.

 Bro,  I  am  keeping  my  fingers  crossed  nd  I  am  quite  hopeful  that  I  can  get  to  see  the  FH  nd  RTG  living    in  peace  bocs  as  I  said  it  all  in  the  genes  nd  my  monsters  are  not  in  fr  war  yet  at  least  fr  the  last  02  months.
 In  fact  I  had  a  8"  tiger  oscar  in  the  sme  tank  about  a  week  back  but  one  of  my  friend  wanted  to  buy  it  so  had  to  give  him  away.
 
 Lastly  fishkeeping  is  all  about  trial  nd  error  nd  creating  the  best  setup  fr  your  fishes  so  if  they  are  Happy  we  are  Happy.    Very Happy    Very Happy    Very Happy  
   
 hey  Puniet  how  is  the  feeding  going  on??  why  don't  you  try  feeding  MP  /  SW/  MW.
 
 Anyways  keep  us  posted.

feeding  MP  /  SW/  MW.  
                 

 Mahek,  the  above  said  abbrevations  don't  trigger  my  brain  cells.  I  tried  a  couple  of  combinations  as  to  what  they  would  mean  but  couldn't  reach  to  a  logical  meaning.MP  could  stand  for  Member  of  Parliament,  but  I  don't  think  a  6  inch  aro  can  eat  one  :lol:      :wink:  .  So  would  you  mind  elaborating  them  for  me.
 
 The  aro,  enjoys  beef  heart  and  my  family  and  myself  have  noticed  that  it  has  grown  a  liltle  under  a  inch  in  15  days  that  we  had  him.
 
 I    can  always  go  for  variety  of  foods,  so  please  tell  me  what  MP  SW  MW  mean.
 
 Talking  of  food,  I  remember  seeing  on  a  couple  of  occasion  sign  boards  saying  "Fish  eggs  for  sale"  in  front  of  a  few  farm  houses.    They  don't  call  them  eggs  actually,  the  actual  advertisement  goes  like  this  "  Yahan  Machli  ke  beej  milte  hain"  which  literally  translates  to  Fish  seeds  are  available  here.  Don't  know  what  species  eggs  are  they;    I  was  thinking  if  one  could  raise  them  as  feeder  fish.  Anyone  with  hands  on  experience  with  this?

 Hey  Puniet,
                                   Mate  I  have  a  small  advice.  My  brother  has  a  2  feet  silver  arowana.He  kept  about  10  pairs  of  quarrymores  with  it  .We  thought  they  would  dissapear  with  in  2  days  but  they  were  left  un  touched.We  inquired  the  local  LFS  wallah  about  it  and  he  said  that  arowanas  dont  feed  on  quarrymores  whatever  may  thier  size.  Also  they  are  too  fast  for  the  arowana.
 Check  it  out.
 ALBINO.

 Thanks.  Market  prawns  I  understand  can  be  purchased  from  the  market.  
 Where  do  you  source  MW  and  SW  from?  What  exactly  are  these,  more  insight  needed  Rolling Eyes

 Rahul,  
 Even  if  these  are  fry  of  carps,  do  you  think  one  can  use  them  as  a  feeder  for  aros  and  other  fish.

 Quarrymores  =  This???
 
 Puneit,  I  do  not  recommend  carps  as  feeder  fish  because  they  have  a  high  fat  content  and  their  scales  are  hard  to  digest...however  many  people  feed  goldfish  to  their    fish  with  no  apparent  ill  effects...YMMV

 Are  Corys  not  quarymores?  I  thought  Rahul  hinted  that.  But  I  guess  I  overlooked  the  "??"  
 
 Albino  says  his  bro  kept  quarymores  with  an  aro.  Now,  assuming  corys  and  qaurrys  to  be  same  then  what  experts  have  to  say  on  this.  
 Personally  I  cannot  imagine,  finding  a  single  one  alive  after  few  days  in  the  aro  tank.  They  are  so  small,  even  a  juvenile  aro  can  eat  them.  
 
 Albino  pls  make  the  situation  clearer.

 Well,
 
 Cories  are  bottom  dwellers...aros  are  surface  feeders
 Cories  are  armoured...fish  usually  find  them  hard  to  swallow
 Cories  can  zip  around  if  needed.
 
 Plus,  we  do  not  know  if  the  tank  was  planted  or  BB
