Nice work bud and congrats to the grad. Also glad to see you went with a boneless hotdog
Sorry for the derailment...but tropical fish store?? I wish I lived near that. I run 15 fish tanks up to 125 gallons with central/south American cichlids and a 5000 gal koi pond in the back.Its family, Im ready to help. The grad is my cousins daughter. The grads sister works with myself and another cousin of mine at my cousins tropical fish store. Then again i did agree to do this after work after my cousins husband brought the beer.
Totally cool I love working there and I love the fish. Its a cool store. Biggest in MN for sure. That pond is awesome!!! Got some great butterfly koi that would look great in there.Sorry for the derailment...but tropical fish store?? I wish I lived near that.

Albino channel cat, put it in at 4" about 7 years ago now pushing 36". As the pond is 4' deep, all fish survive our NY winters.
never heard of such a thing, did they die soon after?bigfurmn and clifish :
Here's a strange one for you:
We had an aquarium when Bear Jr was little, and I was known to sneak a couple of fresh water young fish in with the regular Cheap tropical fish. Such as Bass, Trout, Catfish, Bluegill, Killifish, etc, etc.
One time I put a few 2" Bullhead Catties in, but I didn't throw flies or worms in for them. I just kept sprinkling the tropical fish food in. Guess what happened----Their mouths grew shut. I guess just from lack of use.
Ever hear of such a thing?
Yup---Died. Another one of my experiments that went down-hill.never heard of such a thing, did they die soon after?
I once scooped up some small fish from a pond thinking they were mosquito fish. They turned out to be large mouth bass and they grew to 4" really quick. ended up catching them on a fly and hand line to return them back to the lake...lol
Yup---And LM Bass are Pigs!I was thinking the natives would make short work of the tropical ones.
That is funny as they are vegetarians in nature. Not sure they sell them at stores as they get over 3'. If you like the looks just get some silver dollars or red hooks.We have a giant Pacu at the store that is the same way. He’s our garbage disposal for dead fish.
