Is it fine for a cichlid to eat a gecko's tail?
Heard a splash and a strong ripple in the water. Went over and saw a house gecko jumping out and scurrying to safety, without it's tail. The fish must have gotten it.
This is a new one on me, lol. I'm assuming you're talking about your jag. There shouldn't be any issues. They primarily eat fish and crustaceans in the wild, but they're large enough that I suspect small amphibians, lizards (or parts thereof :) ), and maybe other small animals that fall into the water end up on the menu occasionally.

Yup. It seems fine to me. Wonder how it's going ingest a long tail, bones and all. 🤔
What's it with cichlids that makes anything smaller than itself that moves as food anyway? Lol! 😅

Finally, after some research..decided to go with tiger barbs instead of giant danios. They really make great dithersIMG_20210119_203248.jpg 👍

How many of them u got? I like how every one of em got different stripes 👍
Tried 5. Works excellent!
BTW, isn't that how it's supposed to be? The stripes make each of them distinguishable
