NFC: Re: Stunted fish growth and breeding

IMHO a stunted fish is a very unhealthy fish. If you can't provide a big
enough tank for a fish than you should not keep that fish. I would love to
keep a largemouth bass but since they can get  24-30 inches long I won't
soce I don't have the space for a 500+ gallon tank. I just don't think that
it is a very good conservation prospect. If you want small catfish than try
Madtoms, they are native,very cool and stay small.

>                                    I have a question, I have read that
some fish like bullhead catfish for instance, will have their growth stunted
when kept in an aquarium. Which for my tank is a good thing. My question is,
if a fish's growth is stunted will it still be able to mate and lay eggs.
Let say in the case of a bullhead, if you had a male and female but they
only grew to 4 or 5 inches could they mate. I just thought it was an
interesting question.
