New 10 gallon Endler tank

After seeing the Endlers that MGamer posted and researching them I saw an ad on Craigslist for a lady selling them. She was selling them for $10 for a dozen. I bought 2 dozen and put together a 10 Gallon for them. I put some fake plants and a HOB that was running on my 84G tank. I did put PFS in there so if anyone knows if that is a bad thing for Endlers let me know. Here are some pics. Sorry for the blurr but they are fast little suckers. The males are bright and colorful and the females are kind of dull.

Look like black bars to me. PFS should be fine. I wouldn't have started a 10g with 24 of them though. You are going to be overrun sooner than you think

I know it sounds kind of cruel but I was going to put some in the 84G with the angels and balas for live meals as they over run. Is that wrong???

No,not cruel at all. Most of the babies would be eaten in the wild anyway.

I was going to just put them all in the 84G but I dont think they would survive long enough to breed. The one big female is the only sizeable one. From what I have found out in my research the males dont get very big. I dont think they would make it in my 84 with all the big angels and balas. Also my Pictus cats are about 5" long and pretty good at eating little fish.

I found out last week that the LFS that I like actually sells uncrossed endlers. Im considering getting some myself. Very nice setup and acquisition
