    How long have you had them? Do you know how old they are? Are they Africans? They look like it but I can't really see their finnage.

    Yeah they're definitely Africans, one of the pictures shows a slither of bright aqua blue fin on Elvis and they both have blue speckles all the way up and down their bodies. I've not had them very long, they seem happy enough chasing down baby black crickets. They'll have to be pretty young, considering fully grown they're 8-10" in length.

    They are really skinny! No offence intended. They love canned and frozen river shrimp and they like to chase anything that flys. I have to post a pic of mine. I love them to death.

    Personally I feed mine baby black crickets. Should see Elvis, yesterday he jumped, twisted in mid air backwards and lunged to grab a cricket. I also feed them bloodworm when my LFS has them in stock and they're actually alive. I've also tried to feed them a bit of flake, they're not too keen but they are omnivorous amphibious fish, so I thought I'd give it a try.

    None taken, they'll fatten up now that they're out of that LFS and not having to compete with a full tank of mixed species skippers eating one bag of live bloodworm a day. Need to be careful how much I feed them though, from the little information the net has on them, overfeeding can lead to health problems.

    Yours seem very tame, mine are extremely skittish and at the moment jump away as soon as I go anywhere near the tank. They'll get used to me soon enough I hope, then maybe I can hand feed them their live food.
