your bama is 3" long. while snorkeling full tilt males appear to be about 6"
but probably only about 5" in reality. still very robust... not a sleek fish.
sounds like you have decent waterflow... 130 gallon? that tank must be new
as i dont recall ever seeing that tank-in-your school.
you must be feeding the logperch something other than flake. they love
chopped earthworms... ive even had them take little crawdads from my finger tips.
very personable and interesting fish. the oddly marked one i caught in the
sipsey is getting skinny. im feeding bloodworms and mosquito larva but im
thinking he must have some kinda internal parasite. i dont wanna lose this
interesting fish. i best do some worm grubbing.
