Re: Pupfish project questionaire
1. Willing to donate cash, say $10.
2. Willing to set up a tank, do life history, etc.
3. Green eggs and ham are generally not consumed by pupfish, who seem to
prefer live foods such as brine shrimp, daphnia, bloodworms, mosquito
larvae, etc., although they may be trained to accept flake food. Might
want to share this with folks that want to keep them. Also, they tend
to need hard, alkaline water.
