My Hoplos sp.

I think the hoplo cats are going to grow like weeds. One of the regular figured out it could just shove its mouth into the end of the turkey baster during feeding time. I missed that picture but here are a couple of them feeding.

Thanks, I get to see them much more now that the adult Rainbow Cichlids have been moved to a different tank.

Good to see your fish are training you well. Wonder what else they have planned for you?
