I've caught many but never kept any. I've now added a few to both tanks. Tanin tank (40 ga) now has 3 creek chubs and 1 bluehead, all about 3" long. Small desk tank (6 ga) has six blueheads? of various small sizes. I'll move them to the 40 as they get bigger. Any special considerations I need to be aware of? I've heard they're pretty easy.

My experience was they will eat almost anything, including each other, if there is enough of a size discrepancy. I also don't think a 40 gallon tank is big enough long term for them though it should work for awhile.

Jason is right. I kept some 4-6 inch Creek Chubs with a small bullhead cat They do eat everything and are pretty tough.
I also keep bluehead chubs with mixed schools of yellowfin shiners and other locals. They are very peaceful most of the time even when there is a size difference. Their mouths are not as huge as Creek Chubs so they are not as likely to each a shiner or darter.
