Lucked into a pair of Noturus miurus (brindled madtoms) today!

Post by bekateen »

A friend of mine who keeps (legally) North American fishes had a pair of adult (smallest is 10 cm SL, largest is between 11-12cm SL) brindled madtoms that were harassing other fish in his tank. He offered the pair to me today and let's just say it was an offer I couldn't refuse.

Considering their ecology and tank preferences, I'm putting them in my 40 gallon "toilet flush" tank with my .

He said the pair has spawned at least once in his tank, as he found two small fry a while back. In my tank, their new home, hopefully they thrive, and more! :-p . ... To be continued. :heart:

Cheers, Eric
