Thanks Jay and Steven :) I hope the kidos think so too. It looks like we
might have a chance at a 150 gallon in the grade school as well. Not sure
about that yet. I think we'll give that one the non-bass and bluegill
bigger fish treatment.... Mmmmmm... Can you say Longear? Or maybe... It'll
be a specimen tank with 1 bowfin and his "native" food :)

They probably would. I made up a little Data Sheet for them with the fish
pictures and some description about them, so they'd know what things were.
That might be a good next step for the next school year. We caught this one
a little late, but it's set a great precedent for how to do this in the
future. :)
