Wally.. this is amazing!!! I have never ever been able to get Crappies to
acccept anything other than live food! This is why I stopped raising them.
The tank was really getting messy with minnow scales flying everywhere. The
tank started to resemble one of those little plastic bubble things with a
snowman in it filled with water and glitter, and when you shake it up, it
looks like it's snowing! Are you sure they are actually eating the food
and not spitting it out???.. Please share with us what you did to get them
to acccept this food!

Also, the descriptions of tanks sound really attractive! It's nice to see
people go out of their way to make the habitat in the aquarium reflect those
habitats in which the fishes are native to. This is attractive in itself
and really pulls the whole display together. As soon as you get the photos,
please post them so we can see! I think you also have me wanting to be on
the look out for beaver wood! :-)
