 Hi  Sathiyan,  this  particular  section  is  only  for  Discus  fish.  Please  introduce  yourself  first  and  then  post  the  same  in  the  appropriate  section.
 Introduce  yourself  in  the  "New  Members  and  Beginners"  section  first.
 
 Now  coming  to  your  fishes,  why  dont  you  release  them  back  in  the  river  from  where  you  caught  them?
 It  may  eat  your  guppies  as  well.
 
 Raj

 Well  ideally  if  you  want  ready  food  then  aquaculture  food  is  the  best  option.  Otherwise  if  you  want  food  you  can  make  at  home  then  a  mixture  of  flour  +  cooked  and  blended  chicken(or  any  meat)  +  spinach  mixed  into  a  dough  and  then  balls  should  do

 hey  Sathiyan  -  
 
 IME  ..  ive  kept  carps  with  guppies  before  and  they  do  ok.  But  please  do  be  careful  since  these  are  wild  and  the  ones  I  had  were  raised  with  guppies  since  the  time  they  were  an  inch  long.
 
 For  feeding  ...  When  we  bait  carp  we  use  a  lot  of  mixtures  but  primarily  I  think  you  should  be  ok  with  Raagi,  flour  mixed  with  some  sugar  syrup  (trust  me  they  have  a  sweet  tooth)  &  feed  them  some  prawn  once  or  twice  a  week  or  so  for  protein  purposes.  They  tend  to  lean  towards  the  veg  side  more.
 
 Your  carps  are  pretty  cool  though  and  that  big  tank  you  have  should  be  good  enough  for  them  for  a  2-3  years.  You  may  need  to  switch  over  to  a  larger  one  or  consider  releasing  them.  Ive  seen  these  going  to  even  20kg  +  in  lakes.
 
 Plants  -  Your  carps  will  uproot  most  plants  all  the  time  ...  so  no  point  planting  i  guess.  Since  your  tank  is  outdoors  ...  you  are  gonna  have  concerns  with  filtration  unless  you  clean  up  every  week  or  so  because  carps  are  messy  to  the  point  of  plaguing  themselves.
 
 Hope  that  helps  -  
 
 Thanks
 Darius
