Pair of True Percs

My LFS has been holding a pair of True Percs for the last week for me. I went and saw them Wed. and plan on picking them up this Sat. to be placed in my QT. They are wild caught and when I watched them Wed. they looked and acted real well. Before the LFS bag them up for me I was going to ask them to feed them. If they eat, great! If they dont, what would you do? They are asking $50 for the pair.

You gotta know when to hold em and know when to fold em. I would pass cause if they don't eat they don't survive.

Agree wih above. Have you considered tank raised? They are hardier and you can avoid most problems like this.
Food for thought.

Thanks guys, that was my thinking also. If they dont eat I'm passing on them.

I got them Sat. and both are eating great. the only thing that I'm concerned with is that they are staying away from the LR and hanging out on the glass
