Hello, I need an ID for these fish. We got a pond in our backyard that's just about dried up. Fish everywhere in the puddles. These I would like to know what they are so I can find if they are possibly suitable for any of my aquariums. Meanwhile, I'll be fighting the herons and raccoons. :lol:

Why does anyone even bother with you around?!? Only gave us 22 minutes when clearly I need 23 to come up with something better than Fishy McFisherFace.

Why did it took me three minutes to load that picture?

Sorry, I'll pretend to be cluless next time.


And I got like 20. Put them in a quarantine tank. We will see how it goes.

  :P Large mouth bass is what I assume you mean? I may in the future, but, I think those require a large tank?

Yes, large mouth bass. It was the smartest, most personal fish I have ever kept. You can start a fingerling in a 10 gallon tank. They grow fast, so be prepared to upgrade your aquarium. If you train them early enough, they will eat cichlid food. Having said that, mine went nuts when it saw me coming with live food. It would jump out of the tank and engulf my entire hand with its mouth (worms, feeder fish, etc). Great pet. I am not familiar with the species you are keeping now, but they look neat.

I love these guys! 

 

They make pretty good aquarium fish. Hardy and fun to watch, but they're also picky eaters and somewhat secretive. The best foods for them are earthworms and other live foods and chunks of frozen shrimp, which you sometimes need to wiggle around on the end of a stick to get them to respond. They're close relatives of pikes and pickerels and like them are predators that respond to movement.

 

(They aren't native to my state, but i was lucky enough to come across an introduced population and have five. Also, here's an illustration of one I made a while back:)

A few of them seemed to like the flakes which I was rather surprised about. And nice drawing.

I added some panfish, which I believe are blue gill, and added some silver minnows as well. However the silver minnows I have kept for years.

These guys like to bury themselves. So they keep up-rooting plants.

Update: Still have all of these guys. Doing really good too. One has a missing eye so he swims crooked, but he still finds his way around.

I once had a guppy that was missing both eyes. I eventually put her with my mexican cave tetra (it was always kind of funny to see the guppy bump into rocks while the tetra maneuvered perfectly around obstacles). She actually gave birth, and if I remember correctly all of her babies grew to adulthood and were given away.

This reminds me of Formiculture's first year. The only poster was pretty much Drew. He'd post an ID thread. It would be like me and maybe two or three other people who read it, but never replied. And then a few days later Drew would ID his own thread. And that was that.
