I keep a minnow trap set out most all the time off my pier. Today when
I pulled it in I expected to find the usual sunnies and hopefully a
new shiner or two. When I looked in I was shocked to see a zebra
stripped fish! I didn't even have a bucket to put them in because I
was expecting to release them all.
Yesterday I took a leaky 10 gallon and set it up in the boathouse with
UGF and filled it with lake water. Thought this would be a good place
to dump and then sort them latter once they are calmer. I hurried and
just dumped the contents into the tank without taking time to see what
else was in there!
Best I can tell this is a Logpearch (plate 41 in Peterson's) Yet mine
is nearly white/silver and VERY black stripes. Quite a striking fish!
Any ideas on how I keep it alive? Will it adapt to the tank or will it
just die? This fish came out of a dammed up lake so current is
minimal. Mostly a mud or sand bottom, similar to my two tanks with
Any ideas on what to feed him?
If I can keep him alive I want more of these guys! I had no idea that
they were in the lake! It is quite a nice looking fish. Not nearly as
drab as it shows in Peterson's.
"Consider carefully what you hear", he continued "With the measure you
use it, it will be measured to you -- and even more. Whoever has will
be given more; whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken
from him." Mark 4:24,25
