I pickerel or two or several would love that tank. One bowfin would
rule it. Pickerels will eat all kinds of live foods: fish, worms,
crayfish, shrimp, insects, amphibians, other pickerels. They really
love tadpoles. No spines, fat and juicy, full of algal vitmains and
minerals. Yum. You need to feed them as often as you can. Young
ones grow like weeds on heavy feedings.
