Re: Trump meets Kim K.

Well, it's a common political "trick" to do some high profile meetings without any significant results (meeting with show business personalities, mostly) so that everyone looks at that while you're passing less "great looking" projects in the shade.

Re: Best food for a pictus catfish?

When I got my first loaches, I acclimated them to store-bought food by first giving them finely cut fish or shrimp, and then a mix of fish/shrimp and dried flakes, slowly increasingly the flakes-to-fish ratio.

Re: A new food

It may be used from time to time as a "novelty" gourmet food, but not as a staple food for loaches. For a regular use, no matter how they like raw beef, it would be better to rely on things that would be more natural for them, seafood being a prime example of that. Sometimes, I either feed them smal...
