I found what appears to be a baby flathead in medium minnows this past October. I based assumption on the tail. I saved it and put it in a friends' 70 gal. aquarium where it has grown from 1.5" to over 5" in two months. If my pictures actually appear in this thread can anyone confirm that it is a flattie and has anyone ever raised a flattie in their aquarium? It gets along with the foot long oscar, convicts and parrot fish pretty well. It doesn't bother them and they don't bother it for the most part. I assume that will change by next summer when it gets larger but we'll see.
