NFC: Re: studfish

Hi Matt... So Dallas hasnt had enough rain huh ? Hmmm.... Ft. Worth area
lakes are topping out...  LOL       Back to the Live Foods question...  Try
getting some Red Wigglers and cutting them up for your Catenatus... They
might ignore them if not moving but after they get a taste for them they
will start eating them as soon as you drop them in the tank... All my
Sunnies go crazy when fed them and the bait shop sells them reasonbly
priced.. The worms arent good as a basic diet but with a variety of other
stuff, your studfish should do fine... HTH...
