Just bought some American-Flag Fish
just got in some American-Flag Fish (aka Jordanella floridae) last weekend. These are the first they've had in stock in over a year. I bought four (two males and two females) for less than two dollars each and plan to breed them once they are mature. Attached (hopefully) is a picture of the two females in my quarantine tank. The two males wouldn't pose when I was trying to take a picture with them.
For anyone who hasn't kept these fish before they are egg layers that are native to Florida and are one of the best species of fish for controlling thread algae. They are good community fish except when spawning. When mature, the males have a distinctive pattern on their bodies that looks very much like the American flag (hence the name).
