Re: NFC: American Flagfish, Jordenella floridae

Observations on the Jordenella floridae

They inhabit the dense shallow shoreline grasses usually covered in algae and
are collected with F. confluentus and Elassoma evergladei. The female has a
prominant black spot on the dorsal. They are fin nippers and omnivores,
readily taking both live and prepared foods as well as grazing on algae. I
have them in a tank of natives with little to no problems with "nipping".
Perhaps they simply prefer the more colorful finnage of the exotics.  : )
