Re: E P Sunfish

Thanks for the vote of confidence regarding an article, I've definately
got a couple of ideas along that line rattling around in my head but I'm
also curious as to other members experiences with the Everglades Pygmy
Sunfish. There must be other people out there that are raising and
trying or are breeding them. I've been struck by the high degree of
aggressiveness of the males and wonder if 2 males can be kept in a 5
gallon tank safely. Will the males pester the females to death? Has
anyone had this happen ? And what about the actual spwning behavior
and/or location is it a cleared spot or in vegetation? I would think
that this would be fertile ground for comments and observation from the
various NFC members. How about how many NFC members are actually keeping
Everglades Pygmy Sunfish?
Maybe this is a topic more appropriate for NANFA if indeed it is a
differant discussion group. I'm still confused about the two (not how
the two groups differ philosophically) but maybe there is another list
server that I'm not currently recieving. I find the NFC discussion
interesting and the NFC goals admireable but I'm also interested in the
fish as aquarium pets and would like to discuss their behavior and such
with others. And I know that behavioral observations can be valuable to
the care and preservation of a species in the wild
