Default AWESOME aquarium hardcore question

OK, in my 70 gallon half full aquarium........

RECIPE:

2 carnivorous baby turtles
25 or so assorted goldfish
1 gigantic crawfish


I am adding 2 BIG plecostamus to suck on the sides and clean the green gunk.

Kewalski....(said giant crawfish) is effing with the biggest Plecostamus to no end........

It is only day 1, but I am seriously considering removing kewalski's claws...

Nice, I used to have a 120gal salt water setup pre-marriage. I always had trouble with my triggers nipping at all my other fish. Been waiting for the right time to get back in. Stoked for you.

I would not pull the claws off. If you do, at least make a Po' Boy.

Those plecostamus have some tough skin I wouldn't worry to much about them, I used to have a 90 gallon with 3 large Oscars and one day one of them decided to try and eat one and unfortunately he didn't make it but the Oscar didn't get past his head cause of the thick skin it couldn't eat more of him. After a week or so they will figure it out for themselves. Good luck fish tanks are awesome!

Drop a live nightcrawler in front of the crayfish, it's as good, or better than wild kingdom. If you add a couple more crayfish, it's a battle royale.

I've had tanks of various types for 25 years. Carnivorous fish were always a mistake. We had a huge pleco when we lived up north and that was a very hardy fish - I'd favor that guy.

Regarding the triggers (saltwater), they were a serious hassle. Between them and the lionfish, nothing smaller than a bout 2" survived long.
