I had a generous offer from Doug_Dame to check out some of his Killifish spots up in Levy County that I couldn't turn down - so we met up this weekend in the marshes near Cedar Key. I was specifically looking for Diamond Killifish (Adinia xenica), Sheepshead Minnow (Cyprinodon variegatus variegatus), and Marsh Killifish (Fundulus confluentus).
There were large schools of Gulf Killifish (Fundulus grandis) and Longnose Killifish (Fundulus similis) as well as Diamond Killiifish and Sailfin Molly's (Poecilia latipinna).
Some of the Gulf Killifish were very large.
Doug managed to net this tiny unidentified flatfish.
I also managed to catch my first Diamond Killifish
Some Sheepshead Minnow and Marsh Killifish turned up in the net, but I was unable to catch any. I did catch some Pinfish (Lagodon rhomboides) and regular Sheepshead (Archosargus probatocephalus) though.
We decided to check out Mule Creek nearby and Doug was able to net a Hogchoker (Trinectes maculatus) fairly quickly.
I managed to catch a bunch of strange looking sunfish. I have posted them below this first entry. Would love to hear opinions on what they are.
Big thanks to Doug for showing me around and helping me get a new species.
