    I was prepping my dinner and cut a small piece of raw shrimp off and added it to my tank to see who would eat a bite.

    Here is what I have:

    -Leopard Cory Cats
    -Oto Cats
    -Tiger Barbs
    -Cherry Barbs
    -Yellow Spiney Eel
    -Dwarf Blue Gouramis

    First member to guess the correct answer wins. One guess per member please : )

    Going to guess tiger barbs even though that answer was taken. Those are hungry little guys...

    My guess would have been Cory's then Tiger Barbs. Tiger Barbs came in second. After 30 minutes the Cory's and Gouramis were tag teaming it.

    The first place fish still has not been guessed.

    The Eel made Shrimp Tacos?

    Everyone did the same thing I did and assumed the Cherry Barbs would not hit it first.... and one did!

    This experiment was definitely not scientific and if you tested it 100 times the Tigers would probably win as they are always the first to eat normally.

    The little Cherry that hit it is a very assertive little guy. I see him chasing the Tigers all the time.

    All fish have hit it except the Oto's. I'm guessing they'll try it soon.

    I'm guessing I would have had a different result if I did this at night when the lights were out. The Corys rule the night!

    Thanks for playing everyone.

    Hello everyone and thank you for letting me join your community. My husband and I have 5 tanks, and we both have experience with aquariums, but even a seasoned expert is going to need some help from time to time. Thanks to my husband's diligence about cleaning and water changes, we have pretty good luck with most of our fish. I am thankful for ya'll because many things arise that we need help with. TY- Karen-Leigh
