Lake Chubsucker are apparently uncommon in this area. I have collected a grand total of two of them. The one illustrated was collected using a dipnet as it was hiding in a mass of vegetation floating in the water. The other was collected in Sam Houston National Forest in a dip pool next to a bridge of a main highway. Both did well in captivity. They seem to be very fond of algae and keep the glass spotless. They tend to remain someone nervous even after being in captivity for a long time.
