Re: NFC: Re: Re: Stunted fish growth and breeding

Chris I have been doing and teaching fish farming for
the past 25 years+, in that time I have cared for a
LOT of geriatric fish,

the channel cats I have been talking about were all
handpicked to become breeders. The last ones that I
bought had about 3,000 companions.

I will just throw it out one last time, the amount of
water changes are a far bigger criteria then the size
of the holding container.

BTW, if you can produce a 3' long 3yr old channel cat
the fish farmers in Arkansas want you to come show
them how.
