I don't know that I'm qualified to judge that. The Hol Chan folk could say for sure.
My guess is 'shelter' is the deciding factor. Does the area provide a place for the small fish to hide while they grow larger than bite size, and food. If that is the criteria then yes, but I'm not the expert in this dept.
