Re: Florida Visit?
An addition to my earlier reply. (I forgot to address the
catch-and-release part) I don't see why you can't keep the fish you might
collect. I'll feed them in my fishroom for a couple weeks and mail them to
you when you're ready. Some of our locals are really quite nice. In fact,
I think the local Lucania goodei are the best I've ever seen for bold,
bright color. If you catch some- I'll make sure you can try to breed them
Why so helpful? (a question for new killie keepers) I have yet to
meet a killie breeder who did not just do everything they could to be
helpful and supportive of my efforts and interests. Hence, I like to be a
good guy too.
