    Default tough cat, wrong forum

    I originally posted this in the cichlid forum and then realized (duh) that it was more appropriate for this one, whoops..... i've got a pair of firemouths that have bred after only 3 weeks of having them and already having trouble scouting out LFSs that are willing to take them. i keep having flash backs to the pandemonium i had a few years ago with some convicts that absolutely refused to stop breeding. i don't have the facilities to separate the pair, and in truth, i do like watching the spectacle of a pair of cichlids caring for their young, so I don't necessarily want them to stop. my question is does anybody have any suggestions of a good predator ( I'm thinking a catfish of some type maybe) that loves cichlid fry and is tough enough and willing, to earn his meal, as I prefer this method of population control as opposed to sticking the unwanted in the freezer (seems a waste if there's a fish out there that would love to have such a bountiful meal set before him) thanks for your suggestions, and sorry, in advance, if I've horrified anyone out there with my ideology.
    change it like you had to drink it!

    you could go grab a 2.5 gal for 10 bucks and a dwarf puffer for 4 bucks and there you have one efficient fry disposal unit. In the most compassionate sense of the term, of course.
