    That's a lot of crypts! Oh my... However, better to have them healthy and growing than melting and dying!
    That is an awesome BGK you have there! I'm not sure if I was one of the smaller tetras that I'd feel comfortable picking of the food that he's shaking in his mouth.. lol. Too close for comfort!

    @darkmerlin21 he's a puppy dog! I've never seen him go for one of the other fish. He's as gentle as the cories haha The dang lemon tetras are more aggressive than my little BGK :)

    Yep, lots and lots and lots and lots of crypts. I believe it was Tom who dubbed me the "king of the crypts" a while back because I grow so many haha It's not difficult by any means. Crypts will pretty much grow in toilet water haha I'm just not sure how many member here actually grow the sheer volume as me. I've grown, sold, and given away a good 150-200 crypts in the last two years.

    What's pretty nuts is that those crypts I pulled last night were just born from two crypts and connected by two runners. Now that each one has been separated and replanted, they will multiply at a ridiculous rate. If each one of those ~70 shoot off just one little baby, I'll have doubled the amount of crypts in less than a month. If each one of those 70 multiplies as quickly as those original two, This tank will have hundreds of crypts by Xmas. If someone comes along to challenge me to the rights of being the King of Crypts, they will have a large uphill battle haha

    Thanks for the info on crypt propagation. It looks life your crypts have lots of room. I think I should spread out my crypts too, great idea!

    Munched that sucker down quick, eh?? He/she eats about three of those a night, when tubifex is on the evening menu. I've seen it chow down and eat about five carnivore pellets in one sitting, as well. Which reminds me, I need to order some more.

    How do they do that? My angels stuff pellets into their mouths, I never know how they fit all that, I mean I would think they'd have to wait until they were soggy to swallow. But your knife fish is even thinner, where does the food go lol?

    His stomach is in the area around his pectoral fins. Depending on how the light hits him, you can see a bulge around that area. That's his belly getting stuffed haha

    One night, about a month ago, I accidentally dropped like 10-15 carnivore pellets into the tank Dude ate maybe seven or eight of them in rapid succession before swimming off to his home in the back corner. I was terrified and expected to see some kind of intestinal blockage issue or something the next day, but the guy was fine.

    I refer to the BGK as a "he," but I really have no way to know its sex. From what I've researched, there are plenty of myths on how to sex BGKs, but bona fide researchers who keep them and study them have said that there is no external sexual dimorphism with BGKs and they can only be sexed via surgical procedures. I've also heard claims that none have ever been bred in captivity.
