Re: NANFA-- mummichogs in freshwater
Thu, 21 Feb 2002 09:53:57 EST

There are aquariums with salt in the water and then there are Tropical marine
aquariums. Mummichogs will do great in the former. what I mean is that
mummichogs live naturally in water of very low quality compared to the
average tropical marine aquarium. Low pH, lots of tannins, and high
concentrations of nitrates. a simple undergravel filter, crushed coral
gravel, with half strength seawater will make your mummichogs happy as clams
in mud. No need for the complexities of a reef tank. I live on the coast and
use mummichogs as bait all the time. Very common fish and they live almost
anywhere it is wet.
