I have 6 Flags, and they are great for me. Mine do not eat any healthy
leaves. They sometimes take a bite out of a dying leaf. Mine also eat
flake, floating pellets (Wardley's ten pellets.), sinking pellets, and
algea wafers. They love the pellets most. I do have them in groups of 3.
2 females and one male per tank. I have them in 2 tanks. Hope this
Ps. I lived in Charleston for 2 years, and am now back in Fla.

After months of lurking, I thought I'd send an inquiry. After reading rave
reviews of American Flagfish in the archives, I got a pair (male and
female) for my ca. 170 L tank. I've discovered that rather than eat just
algae, they are actually eating the leaves! They've made a real mess of
the hygro. I cannot find any other Cyprinodontid that looks like
*Jordanella floridae*, so presumably I have the right beastie--anybody else
had this experience? Do you need to bribe them with some other food when
algae is low? They won't touch flake.
In Charleston, SC where it is triple H weather (hot, hazy, and humid)
