The Central Mudminnow!   What a target.  You've set a rather lofty goal 
to find that one.  It should be interesting to see if you can find any or 
not.  A suggestion: when looking for it do not skip over water that looks 
like it may not contain fish.  They may be in the water anyhow....  I'm 
planning a trip this summer into the Adirondeck State Park to look for 
the same fish.  (I'mm in Upstate NY).  Unfortunately, I do not know where 
you can obtain Flagfish, short of contacting someone in Fl.  On two 
occasions I've had the fish. Both times they came from pet shoppes.  
Contact some shoppes in your area to see if they may be able to order 
some for you.  Also, if they get live food ships from Fl, find out when 
they get them and see if you can check them for Flags.  I've obtained 
some interesting fish this way.

PS: Notice the way I did the sbj heading.  It seems to be a logical way 
to send replies, as everyone gets them.  Unless the reply is personal, it 
should probably be sent to the group, as it may yeild information useful 
to the group.
