recently,(about a week ago), my kids and i were catching some turtle snacks,(minnows,mosquito fish,tiny bluegills,and grass shrimp), when we had some interesting by-catches,5 super tiny(barely an inch long)and 1 small(1 1/2"stink pots.i have all of them set up in a 20 gal long,with hide spots and floating plants.they are all doing fine,eating and active.anyway,i have a question about them.do they ever get used to handling and not musk you,or will they always "drop bombs" when disturbed.i've worked w/ muds and snappers,so i've got the general husbandry down.i don't plan on keeping all of them,just 2 or 3;the rest will be released in my backyard pond.
