Picked this guy up last month. I believe it's a Drumfish. Wondered if any of you may have kept one in your FOWLR's?

Looks like what they used to call a "jackknife" fish, and yes - it's a drum.

I've never kept them, but from what I remember, they lose a fair amount of the pretty on their way to adulthood, and get fairly large to boot.

Good luck with 'im!

~Bruce, bumpin' your thread . . .

I agree with Jackknife. They get huge.

Seems to be limited information on this particular fish. Must not be collected that often. Eating mysis and pellets so far. Thanks for your updates, much appreciated.

It will fit eat anything it can fit in their mouth.
