>were some of these intended for the pond behind your house???

the starhead topminnows now live in the pond behind my house .....the
other species temporarily occupy some of my 20 tanks....most of the fish
collected will be sent  to various Universities, and Individuals with
serious breeding prgrams, the rest are on their way to
Europe..............:) to a wholesaler with serious breeding

 AND how
>aree you transporting these ?? keeping em alive??

a 48 Quart cooler did the trick over the day and the 1 hour trip home
...the water had soured by then and the fish were in dire need of
relocation and or water  changes...I had over 200 fish in there wich is
way more than I normally take , but with the excellent collecting ( i
kept 1/10 th of what I collected) and the huge need I took a few more
than normal
