    Given the right environment anything is possible. They are monsters.

What is a good food for them on a daily basis as I’ve heard you shouldn’t feed them live Reese’s on a daily basis

    Diet should be meaty. Don’t buy store feeders unless you’re going to quarantine them for at least 3 weeks. They will take bloodworms, earth worms, insect larva, live food(raising guppies and mollies is your best bet). Sometimes they will take pellets and freeze dried krill/shrimp. Offer different foods and see what works best. If they are bigger offer some tilapia
