Re: proposed aquarium Suggestions and comments NEEDED badly

Expect aggression from the bass as well.

>what if I just did the bass and a cat would this give my tank some more
>longevity regarding size problems?

Yes.  What kind of cat are you talking about?  Anything but madtoms will
get real big too.  Madtoms would be at risk of being swallowed by the bass.
Noturus flavus will get to about 12" max.  If you can start with real
small fish - 1-2" - you could keep a community until they got too big.
Then you can fry them up!  Mmm, mmm.

>what about your experiences with COST to feed a bass???

I would guess that bass are like other large predators in that they can eat
a large meal and go without feeding for a while.  This may also be
temperature dependent.  If you can catch or buy minnows or crayfish from
the bait shop, you could maybe keep your costs down.  Train him to eat beef
heart or store bought fish or shrimp.

>the cat I figure I will feed worms and other stuff not a problem
>but I think the bass need a more substantial diet and alot of it.  Am I

Not sure.

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.
