My Jack Dempsey ate my Tinfoil Barb!

I find it relatively funny, that after 2 months, with a large ammonia battle in between, that my JD, finally got sick of the tinfoil barb swimming back and forth across the glass.

My tinfoil came up missing today, and I believe Jack is the culprit. Although the tinfoil was at least 3x bigger then Jack's mouth, I am convinced that it was him.

Im not a fan of losing pet fish to predation, however after I picked up this JD a couple months back, it has been a real treat to watch him devour fish. Almost like watching him swallow dollars!

Sorry this is a rant/rave thread about my JD. I love the fish, and hes quite entertaining.

I don't support live food either in a tank, but mother Nature is fascinating.
