Re: i found killifish(fundulus catenatus)??how do i feed em?



Hi Kevin, catenatus (northern studfish) make good aquarium fish if you feed 
them well. Like other studfishes, they don't take flake food. They're happy 
with chopped earthworms, most insects, black worms, and frozen/live brine 
shrimp. With such a diet they'll be fat and colored up, and active in a 
tank. I have an adult male by himself in a 10-gal. tank who is up to almost 
5 inches (~12 cm). He happily takes whole earthworms.
