The fathead minnow is found throughout the United States. Its small size and abundant reproduction makes it an excellent forage fish. The fathead minnow will spawn throughout spring and early summer. Reproduction can be aided with the use of sunken ever-green trees or stacked pallets. The rapid rate of reproduction of this species makes it an excellent choice for stocking where predatory fish are present. Daphnia and Moina are the most diverse, and are a major food source for both young and adult freshwater fish. Stocking daphnia will build your ponds ecosystem from the bottom up.
