Talking two tough lamp eye tetras

This is not a question , just thought Id share this with everyone seeing as Im going to have a very boring two weeks until my ankle heals. A friend of mine had decided to take up fishkeeping then quickly decided it wasnt for him.The two lamp eyes that he had gotten to cycle his tank would either end up my fish or fertilizer for the front yard. So I took them. The first tank they were put in they immediately bullied my von rios and even gave the corys trouble. So I figured I would let my bichir have them(much more honorable death than what my friend had planned for them). Well skip to today, they are both going strong(5 months later). The bichir eats feeders bigger than the lampeyes and has caught faster fish before , but he seems uninterested in them. They are absolutely fearless. They currently spend their time chasing a school of tiger barbs(the bichir has eaten those on several occ.) and pretty much anything else they see fit. They never cause any damage and its very entertaining to watch a normally peaceful fish run things in a tank where theyre easily the smallest fish in it.(GLAD I DIDNT THROW THEM IN MY GUPPY TANK!)

Sounds amusing! It's funny how fish can surprise us sometimes! What happened to your ankle...
