      Feeding Shubunkins

      Hi all,
      I have 4 shubunkins and 4 high finned banded sharks, all about 6" long, in a 60,000 gallon pond and would like to train them to eat in one place. Are there any suggestions on how to train them to eat where I feed them ?
      Thanks,

      Try tying a floating ring in the spot you want to feed them. Only put food there, so they learn that is the spot.

      60,000 gal.? Is this a mud pond? Is that all that is in there? 8 small fish? They might be hopelessly lost ih that much room. There might be more narural food than they could ever wish for and not be intersted in what yo feed them.

      I think that'll be tough with 8 tiny fish in that giant body of water.
