Hey Dorian.
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.

Hello group-

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.
