Re: In Memorium - Silversides

I've kept silversides for a couple of years in the past ... a couple of
times in MO and once in CA.  They aren't very picky about food and care
once you get them home and in the tank.  They are kind of pretty and make a
neat display as a schooling fish!  ( Watch for upcoming article.)
