Wild Fish!

Hey all,

I was just wondering what one would need to do in order to domesticate a wild fish. I was thinking about (in the future) buying an appropriate sized tank and catching a river fish....I know there are a LOT of factors involved here, just wanting to gather some info!

Check with the local laws, since some states don't allow owning game fish.

well that i dont no you should test there water or something. see if theres salt in the water and try to make it just like there place same plants and sand . every thing you could do do it. mite be able to take plants from the lake or pond were you get the fish.

Or I can catch them, skin them, and eat them...which is what people do when they catch fish. I'm not talking about sticking a 10 pound catfish in a 12 gallon tank.

having wild fish is a big thing 4 some, they are more money, more people want them, or some just fancy trying "natives". if a wild fish is there next to a non wild fish in a LFS it would be the wild that sold more, malawi keepers have a big thing 4 getting nice fish F0/wild, a fish in a tank is a fish in a tank whether wild, tank bred or fryed.

others will and have got other views but these are mine
