Hello Frank, we talked briefly at Elkhart show. Glad your room is coming
along. I usually put the fish in a fish bag and set in freezer. Some of the
staff members are real fond of those little bags with eyes in the ice when
they open the freezer to get their lunch.
Another alternative is to spend lots of time with the fish, feed it
especially well, even give it a name, then leave the top open. The more you
like them the more likely they are to jump out and try to find you when they
are lonely. might want to put a very high price tag on the tank so the fish
can read it, the higher the value the longer the jump.
