I just recently learned about madtoms and was thinking of getting one until I found out they don't live anywhere near me. And of course they are hard to breed and no one seems to be selling them. dry.gif

I've always wanted Madtoms, but of course they are not allowed into the U.K. for fear of being released into our waters but we can always admire from afar smile.gif As far as I know you may have to have permission in some States to catch them as some are protected.

Very true--some are quite rare and not allowed to be taken. However, other types are caught using a seine and then used as bait because they are so plentiful. I find that practice to be extremely tragic and disturbing. So I wanted to "save" one or two but as I said they live far away in the eastern states and I'm in the Pacific NW.
