    what kind of bass is that? it looks like some kind of sunfish/bass hybrid, i only say do to realy dark and the patch of collor on his chin/neck. that isnt something ive seen in 17yrs of bass fishing.

    Yes perhaps, then again would it have made a difference if I had brought it from the store? No, donít think so...but I am sure that every fish youíve ever brought home are alive and healthy (doesnít matter how you obtained it), right? Maybe you too should have left those back at the store...if any.

    The Angel has been doing great, but I will keep that in mind. I was worried when the Crayfish were still around. Theyíve killed all except this last remaining Angel.

    All I am saying is if you dont have the right tank for a fish regardless of where it came from it is best to leave it where you found it. The fish you had probably lived 1+ year(s) in the wild and it would be very difficult for it to get used to an aquarium. It might be best if you are wanting to keep a bass then get a very small one and a large enough tank that could handle a fish that will most likely reach 5-6lbs. or more when full grown.

    I was told he was a Rock Bass, and from my own research that is what I found. One of the tell-tail signs I guess is the eyes, they are Fire Red with a black line going from top to bottom.

    Also to the thread starter. If you are knowledgeable with fish keeping, you can provide a life that is safe and happy for your bass. Keep in mind he is wild, so I suggest feeding live fish/ frozen (krill w/e) and try dry.



    Here is another picture.

    Looks like what we call down here (Tennessee) a red-eye bass. I catch them all the time in the local creeks around my house.

    They do need ALOT of oxygen, if you keep one, add about 6 lines for oxygen

    Yep, most native species need LOTS of oxygen, you could get away with 3 powerheads IMO.
