I brought home a tiny (1.5") pickerel from the 2004
convention in SC. It is now about, oh, 5 inches.
Just now I noticed that there are EGGS on the bottom
of the 20-long tank! She is the ONLY fish in the
tank, except for the feeders she gets. Eggs are about
2mm in dia.

BTW, this fish also eats frozen fish almost half her
size. With wild abandon.
