Default Help, Tin Foil Barbs not eating mosquitos fish...

Now what? I got 3 Tin Foil Barbs three weeks ago and put them in a
quarantine tank along with 10-20 mosquito fish (mf). The Barbs are 3" long,
the mosquito fish are of various ages, from baby to breeding adults. None
of the mf's are 'missing'. After 4 days, I put in a tiny amount of fish
food and the Barbs went nuts eating it. I'm not sure what to do with the
Barbs now...

Any other ideas on what will eat these mf's?



See my post : There was an old woman who swallowed a fly.

Good luck

Joe

My tinfoils will eat anything that fits in their mouths. I have seen them
devour 3 dozen in a matter of hours, three days on end. This is the only
reason I am not unhappy about my pond infestation.
