Normal minnow:

Normal minnows are grey and eatable and like the small fish, they don't feed you a lot. Also like small fish, they come in schools. They are preyed on by cod, pompano, lionfish, john dorys, leopard sharks and humphead wrasse. They last appear in Loony Lures and are drawn out by the Intruder. They appear in 9

levels or 15% of total levels.
