Re: Anyone Know a good fish?

Hi Herb & All... I have been around a little while and am interested in
natives as well...Is there a website where I can see what some of the
natives from my area look like? (N.Central Texas)I would like to try some of
the _smaller_ natives like topminnows etc.  How big do the H. formosa get
and would they be compatible with other community fishes..tropical &
native...I am already keeping a few killies and would like to "round out"
the tank with a few of our own native fishes..Thanks in advance...
......Charles, in Texas where the smoke is still around...
