I don't claim to be an expert, by any means, on this subject.  But let me
drag this discussion out a little further -

If Gambusia are not native to the USA, then where did they originate, and

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach him
to use "the Net" and he won't bother you for weeks.
