Re: proposed aquarium Suggestions and comments NEEDED badly

This tank could get a little crowded.  You can do it for a while until the
fish start to grow.  High temps will lead to high aggression.  High temps
will also diminish the carrying capacity of what may become a crowded tank.
I feed Doromin sticks.  You should be able to get all of those fish to eat
them.  The bass may take some training.  Get him used to eating things that
are dropped onto the surface of the water.  Competition from the bluegills
may be a problem.  The bas will eat bugs, worms, shrimp and crayfish too.
The catfish will eat anything.

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach him
to use "the Net" and he won't bother you for weeks.
