    Thankfully I have an uncle with a big pond to keep him until I move out. He is a sterlet sturgeon, so his maximum size of 3feet will take 10years to reach. Currently sitting around 10inches the now. The shop somehow had some and I may get one or two more after xmas!

    WOW. Do you have a long term plan for them? I've seen a few of them in the 6th Great Lake over here in the US that were well over 3 ft long (Acipenser fulvescens) .

    When in doubt, do a water change.

    I'm sure Scotty knows more about them then I do though.

    Good info, thanks Taurus...Scotti makes his own food, just remembered that...maybe the sturgeon will like that?

    Wow, that's awesome. I hear sturgeon have quite specific food requirements though, something like not being able to handle plant protein at all or something.

    Thanks for the great response guys.

    Well as it is barely 10inch long I have time on my side. Takes around 10 years for them to hit 3ft.

    I have bought sterlet sticks, as the name suggests specific for this sturgeon. Watched him feed in the lfs. Their anatomy makes it difficult to feed mainstream foods, I am currently looking into making my own food, needs a high crustacean percentage. Brine shrimp 'bombs' maybe.

    Neat fish Scottie. You are going to have your hands full with this one.
    People say if you can't say something nice then don't say anything at all... Then they wonder why am I so quiet.
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?
