Canada eh
I do apologize about the lack of updates, life has gotten in the way of mfk.

I realized early on that if I were to proceed as planned that I would be essentially shooting myself in the foot as I haven’t yet gotten my Wallace’s shoehead catfish on pellets or frozen which would have led to doubling or even tripling my weekly food costs for ghost shrimp which is not wise so I’ve shifted my focus over to breeding my own live food. I’ve set up a 55 for red wigglers, a 55 for guppies, and I’m going to be setting up another 55 for cherry shrimp. I’m not doing too well with the wigglers and the guppies haven’t started breeding yet so I’m at a standstill at the moment. My fish themselves are still doing good, nothing newsworthy to write about them as of yet.
Ya guppies take a while to settle in. Then when they start breeding it takes the fry about 3 months before they are even remotely edible size, just to be a tiny little snack. For the price of feeder guppies vs. Time invested- I have found it not worth the effort to breed for food. But each to their own I guess.

good to hear you are still working on the fish room.

any updated pics for us?

Surprised the shoe heads aren’t taking to pellets. Most catfish I’ve had never refuse anything although I’ve never had those before.
