    Maintaining minnows

    Has anyone ever kept minnows alive for longer the a few hours? My uncle is wanting to try start selling minnows out of his prop shop in cedar lake and wants me to figure out how to make that happen. Anyone done it? Anyone have distributors for them?

    I keep a tank of them on hand as feeder fish. I just use an arerator and do a water change now and then don't forget to feed them lol!..I don't use a heater but I'm sure it wouldn't hurt.
