55 gallon aquarium tank for raising trout
Posted 20 August 2012 - 03:27 PM
Was wondering if anybody knows anyone or they themselves may have a 55 gal aquarium tank? I'm a teacher and am trying to start a trout in the class room program for my conservation class.
Any info/help would be greatly appreciated,

the NY DEC has come down hard on hatcheries, ever since sick fish ( VHS disease ) were found in raceways a few years ago, and you may need a permit to legally buy fingerlings from a private or state hatchery ... there was an effort to make the VHS-free certification process easier & less expensive, but the last news i heard is a few years old ... it may be technically illegal to keep wild-caught trout in a tank, if you took the 'bucket biologist' route ...
bass and panfish are super easy to keep, as are catfish ... and i have heard that pickerel make good pets, too ...
good luck ... tele.
