       I think I've solved my live food needs . At
least 90% of it . I still add some worms to the mix .
What I did was to move my 55 g to the outside of my
back living room window on the deck and added a small
electric light .  Every night is a feeding frenzy .
The madtoms are not a bit light shy then .They hit a
good size moth like a great white . All my Sugar Loaf
Creek fish are in that tank . Its a real pleasure to
watch thru the window while the Darters nail the
mosquitos . An hour and a half of light gives them all
they can handle . Less time than that most nights . In
the morning I run a net across the top of the tank to
remove excess beetles and moth wings , take out 2
buckets of water , pore the buckets into my tomato and
pepper potted plants on the deck and then top the tank
with fresh water . Everybod is happy but I have the
feeling someone will tell me I have disaster in the
making . Any dire experiences with such a thing ?
