There are some little danio's which he eats now and then. But the whole purpose of those little fish (mostly a school of around 10) is to keep him active on the hunt and exercised. They are way to fast for him but sometimes their guard is down :lol:

It took Filbert almost a year to chew though all the guppies I was breeding in his tank for a SW predator.

Been a while since I could measure him but yesterday he finally lied next to the window without care. 11 inches now :smitten:
