Minnows are small fish. Swimming in schools along the banks and coastlines of freshwater and saltwater rivers, lakes and ponds, minnows are prey to larger fish such as the bluegill and largemouth bass. Minnows are easy to store in a tank and can be kept alive if housed in the right environment and under the correct conditions.
Tips & Warnings
You can also use a small, clean horse trough to house your minnows.
Fathead minnows thrive in water with a temperature of 60 to 75 degrees F.
Minnows can die with a change in environment, including a change in water temperature.
