It's hard to recreate a really biologically active substrate with the small
animals, meiofauna, that they really need.
That could be true although I do feed live black worms, frozen blood worms as
well as OSI staple pellets. It just seems strange that a fish that grew from
2" to 8" in a little over a year would up and die. I know we all loose fish
but once I get a fish established I don't usually loose them. maybe I'm just
an old softy but I take my fish seriously and loosing one is like loosing any
other pet. I hope my hog sucker doesn't follow him. It took me a long time to
catch my hog sucker and I don't want to loose him too.
