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,
