Re: FFF is the wrong name

I have three words for *you* American Flag Fish. I am
joking with the tone don't take it as being mean.
Seriously though the fish's name is American Flag Fish
and it is so named because of the striped pattern on
its sides. ITs scientific name is Jordanella floridae,
I think this is where most people are getting the
florida part from. Just wanted to bring that up since
I hate to see bad nomenclature lead to a fish getting
a name change which will in turn cause all of our
grandkids to get in an argument when someone decides
to revert to its original name ;-)

     I'm new to this sub-hobby, but I had hair algae,
or what my LFS 
string algae, and I found the cure for this scourge.
     I've got one word for you:  Florida Flag Fish
     Three will be plenty.
