my convict cichlids recently gave birth to about a million (exageration)babies. i know my Oscar and Pictus catfish will take care of most of them, but when they get to be the size of minnows, would my painted turtle eat them? or is she limited to specific fish?

My paint will eat fish three times the size of his own head if i let him get hungry. I have tropical fish in the tank at all times and out of the 15 I startd with over three months ago I have 10 left. He doesn\'t eat them very often, but he will eat them

I don\'t think you rescued him. He was in his natural habitat! I hope when you find out that their not an easy animal to take care of, that you don\'t just release him back. You mess with the ecosystem like that!
