It's been a long time since I tried shad, but I seem to remember 
they only last a few days, dash themselves to death against the 
glass, and what have you.  I think they are grazers too and 
wouldn't take regular foods.

They are common here but I haven't tried any because of my early 
experiences with them.  Plus, they're not _terribly_ exciting as far 
as aquarium fishes go.
