HI All,

Just a reminder that this presentation on native American fishes is tomorrow (Tuesday). After the presentation, included in the monthly auction, will be some species offered that you typically don't find available.

Species: (currently acclimated to ~60F but I will be raising that slowly over
the weekend to 70-74F; all can live in normal tank temps or lower)

Banded Pygmy Sunfish, Elassoma zonatum
Everglades Pygmy Sunfish, Elassoma evergladei

(both stay VERY small, max ~1")

Speckled Madtom, Noturus leptacanthus
(max 4", like other cats will swallow anything that fits but otherwise
peaceful)

Eastern Mudminnow, Umbra pygmaea
(max 2", snail-eater!)

Central Longear Sunfish, Lepomis megalotis megalotis
(best suited for a large S.A. Cichlid type tank, max 9")

Orangethroat Darter, Etheostoma spectabile
(will eat smaller fish but otherwise well suited for community tanks, max 3")

Yellowfin Shiner, Notropis lutipinnis
(schooling community fish but may outcompete slower tank mates for food,
similar to denisoniI barb; max 3")
