feeding a young zebra

Post by Bugsy »

Have some questions and concerns with getting "one" baby zebra. This young zebra will be between 1 1/2 - 13/4" insize larger ones are just to expensive for me. I have no desire to breed these fish but enjoy the beauty of having one in my current tank that is home to L134 and a long fin bristlenose right now. I have plenty of caves for the plecos but will feeding this youngster be an issue with the existing plecos I have in there right now?

It could be. They are not really aggressive eaters when non zebras are involved. Sometime some will compete but more often they may not. While the bn won't eat the same stuff as avidly (though they do eat was easiest), the 134 is a meat lover like the zebra. The zebra would likely get more food being a lone bottom dweller.
What makes the common person uncommon is common sense.
