So my son caught a small Northern about 6 inches long and wants to keep it awhile.We put it in a 10gal with sand, some slate rocks arranged so there are hides under it and a big water dish.Is this enough? We put on a light so the warmest spot is 80ish.
He already ate two small goldfish for us too.
And we caught him basking in the water..Should we use bottled water? Should the sand be kept damp or just a small portion of it damp? also I can add some eco earth to the sand if thats better..
What about scented pinkies is this a bad idea? We can get goldfish and minnows and even frogs at the bait shop so pinks arent necessary.
