I raise hog chokers regularly from larvae up to more than 6". frozen blood
worms seem to be the key but tiny ones need baby brine shrimp. Once they get
into the 4" or more range they will feed on small earth worms. Mine
eventually learn to eat tiny pellets. although they do like to bury in the
sand they also like smooth surfaces. I have one who likes to sit on top of a
log ready to swoop down on worms or tiny fish. If they could reproduce in
freshwater they would occupy similar habitats as darters (my opinion)
