I decided to tie a 3 foot long ish piece of fishing line to a paper clip and hook that to a piece of shrimp (the paper clip is closed). My spotted pike/gar/needlefish which ever is the proper name has started showing interest in it now that he has seen my baby convict ripping pieces off of it. He came sooooo close to grabbing it but when Mr. Im a tiny convict cichlid comes to take a bite he darted to the other side of the tank... this is getting really frustrating lol.
