Musky is very illegal, it was dropped off by a rogue angler with a guilty concionce** its MAYBE 34" now, it was 26" when he arrived a year ago
the flathead is a monster, very docile yet again the baddest monkey in that jungle, its the boss of the tank. When we got him in he was 30 pounds, he has eaten many a fish since then and girth wise looks like he is maybe approaching 40 pounds soon or by the end of summer.
we got a channel cat that seems to gain alot of girth once or twice a month, few days later its back to normal size......somethings telling me he is either eating the panfish or I know what happened to the bullheads now.
You got a BPS(bass pro) or a cabelas near you? I see you are in virginia but not sure what BPS has around there, I know we dont have a store there yet.
The bigger fish get fed first, usually 6"+ suckers, then the roaches and minners go in and all sorts of fun begins. Those little feeders are scared to death, I mean if I had 15 pounds of hungry panfish chasing me id be scared to but those little fish will use any and all methods to hide or outrun the predator, its a great time, humorous yes but the sheer dedication of the predator to get that food.
I got some pics from our hammond,in store as well last week but I got the aq tech at work to use m EPICcam to go diving in the tank with.
Also, if you can get to Hamburg PA you gotta see their predator feedings, he dives in and feeds them by hand.
