Re: NFC: Fw: Native fish to add?

 Apparently the Sheepshead minnow is the
> Texas version of the flagfish.  

Generally speaking, sheepshead is the common name for
Cyprinodon variegatus, which is found all the way from
New England down to South America, unless you are a
splitter and then these are different species in the
Carribean area.   In any case, Flagfish, which really
are supposed to be American Flagfish and not Florida
Flagfish, are Jordenella floridae.

I would put some topminnows in with the flagfish and
some bluefin killies.   Flag fish can be pugnacious,
epecially the males when they are breeding.
