Any one who spawns and raises very many fry will tell you that you will need to find an outlet for your excess fish. This is my outlet!
I picked this fish up from my friend William Smith in Florida. Bill collects natives and then makes them available on Aqua-Bid under the name ThatMagicGuy. That’s how I came into possession of this fish.
You can see from the Aqua-Bid photo that the fish was tiny when Bill first collected it. For the first few months I fed lots of mosquito larvae and some newly hatched Danio fry.
A year later, (spring 2014), the fish is now around 8″ in length. I keep it in a 55 gallon tank and it has a constant supply of tank raised feeders available. The fish was kept in an unheated tank over the winter and the cooler temperatures may have slowed it’s growth.
