Jordanella floridae (American Flag)
I was wondering what people know about the Jordanella floridae or American Flag
fish. I have a publication from Dennerle (Dennerle Know-How, "Algae prblems? We
solved them long ago:") This is a promotional catalog concerning their algae
products, but like most of their catalogs, it has a lot of cool info too. On the
last page there is a picture of a fish that looks pretty good for an algae eater.
The caption by the picture says:
"A little known but good algae eater is Jordanell florida, the American Flag."
Has anyone ever seen these fish or used them in their aquariums? I am going to do
some web crawling for info on these fish, but was wondering about people's hands-on
knowledge. In the recent discussions on this list about algae eaters, the name
didn't come up I think. For people in North America, it might be a close-to-home
addition to tanks. There seems to be so many fish that are popular that do not come
from North America, so I was thinking about doing some investigation into a North
American stream tank or something. Is this how the obsession starts? First it is
just one tank, but then another, and then another...
Coming out of my lurking,
