Does anyone else own Rosey/Fathead minnows?

I know there are people who own White Cloud Minnows, but I rarely herd of anyone keeping "feeder fish" as pets. Is there anyone out there who own these little balls of energy? Okay mine are little per-say anymore and they're no longer as cute. Especially my fathead which has grown quite fast and quite ugly. XD Brown/black Fourze is that ones name and a jumper he is. Made me scared he'd leap into the filter one day. The next one is Agito which has a large black dot untop his orange body, and lastly Kuuga which was mostly a solid pinkinish/orange color. It gained a few black dots on the tail.

I used to have them, the males get bumps on their heads and are bigger than the females. We used to catch and release wild ones when we went to the lake. I wasn't impressed with them.

However, they're still an interesting species. Just not my cup of tea.

I would figure, their are much fancer fish out there then a plain old minnow.

Wild minnows are fun especially when you can still see them swimming beneith the ice.

I breed fathead minnows at my work. I think they're kind of cute, especially when they beg. I like the banding the males get when they are ready to breed. I made the mistake of bringing a couple home once and putting them in with my betta. It didn't last long, I wouldn't recommend doing that, lol.

YEAH especially the way they are territorial. I love their little push fights they do.

I keep them with the goldfish. I love keeping them! And they got along with the new betta( known for killing small fish). Not so muck with the last betta... But yeah! I love them!
