Re: Two Riv marmoratus



Scott,
Now, that is something to take note of! I would not of thought of that,
until after the fact also, and I do feed blackworms regularly to all my fish
that will eat them. The other pair of Rivulus I got from Al's collection are
the cylindraceus, that he was also keeping in the 15 percent saltwater
mixture, they too should be watched closely as to food fouling. As for
wasting my time. you certainly are not, as that was the first I have read
about this fish, of which I only got this past Saturday, at our NWK meeting
at Barry Cooper's this weekend. It was the first time I had even heard of
the fish and just had to have it.  Thank you Scott.
