G'day Fellow Raiders...

Probably been visited before, but I have a little question, I want to start catching poddy mullet and keeping them alive for future use live bait...

I was just wondering, how long would they stay alive for in a fish tank etc with aerator and if water gets changed every second or third day...

Would this be worthwhile, or will I be better off trying to get them early in the week and use as the week goes by?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated...

Cheers All

They're hardy little buggers and don't mind a bit of fresh either.

As above, water temp is critical and would pay you to buy an aquariam type heater to maintain water temp.

In a small volume aquarium, the temp can drop quite a few degrees on a cold night and the fish will then start to develop fungal or viral infections due to the immune system struggling with the "non - optimum" water temp.

Much the same as you and I would be prone to disease when out of our comfort zone.

Good Luck
