Re: Anyone Know a good fish?

Shouldn't be a problem with the eggs of most of our plant-spawning 
killifish, which can be handled the same way as eggs from non-native 
plant spawning killifish.

ALSO: H. formosa is a good starter fish or candidate for 
freebies/introductory packets.  Due to small size, the postage is 
minimal, as they don't need a lot of water to ship in.  I sent abot 50 
H. formosa, packed three trios to a bag, with all bags inside a 
styrofoam box which was inside a cardboard box and postage was about $7. 
I would think that we could ship a trio of H. formosa for less than $2.

Suggestion: advertise a "Try a Native" special, which would include a 
trio of H. formosa for $5, plus $2 s/h, which includes a NFC Beginner's 
Guide to Keeping Natives and 10% off coupon for their next purchase of 
fish from the NFC.
