Subject: Walleye

Has anyone had any experience in keeping a walleye in an aquarium?  I've seen
them in local aquariums but the fish do not look too happy.  They just sit at
the bottom and don't move, possibly because they are sensitive to the light.  I
have seen fingerlings being sold in a pet store and these fish are swimming all
over the place.  So is there a difference in aquarium behavior between juveniles
and adults when they are put in an aquarium or is the difference between locally
bred walleye and walleye that have been hatched in the wild?
