I think I have been convinced to put a couple of Bowfin in my new tank.
Not sure how long I will keep it a Bowfin tank. It should be exciting.
They got in my pond and I am trying to get them out, or at least reduce the population.
If I can catch some small enough anyway.
I can throw my 12' cast-net in my pond and catch plenty of live food as needed.
Also, a local hardware store has live bait minnows for $3 a dozen I can get in a pinch.
