OK. Here goes.

Besides some desert pupfish species, I have *Heterandria formosa* No. Lake
Ponchatrain; Merry Widows, *Phallichthys amates*; and a few White River
Springfish whose population I could build a bit. One of the most interesting
fish to breed is plentiful around here. That's the armored three-spine
stickleback, *Gasterosteus aculeatus*. We also have *Lucania parva* (the
"Three Tenors Fish") in many of the creeks entering SF bay.

I haven't been trying to save babies, but have them and could on *Xenotaca
eiseni* the Red-Tail Goodeid, and *Poecilia mexicana* Moapa (near the
junction of AZ, UT and NV). I guess I need feedback on what is wanted, more
than anything. If someone *needs* a breeding challenge, I could collect some
Red Shiners, *Cyprinella (Notropis?) lutrensis*, from the Virgin River
(NV/AZ) in the spring.

Looking for Mexican pupfish, desert or brackish, and unusual fun livebearers
or killies.
