RE: [Killietalk] Killies in Mexico
In Cancun you will not be very far from the following killifish species:
Marine/brackish habitats: Cyprinodon artifrons, Floridichthys polyomus,
Jordanella (=Garmanella) pulchra, Fundulus persimiliis, F. grandisimis and
Rivulus marmoratus. Freshwater: Rivulus tenuis. Some of these species are
quite common, others really tough to collect. Profundulus likely will not be
found in this area. I doubt you will find anything of interest in Puerto
