Re: black gambusa

Michael: Interested in trading some of the black gambusia for the fw 
sponges.  BTW, melanistic gambusia are primarily males, however, 
selective breeding can result in mottled females also.  Except for 
highly melanistic and isolated  populations, generally the ratio is 1 
melanistic gambusia per 500 in a "normal" population.
