Hi everyone, I found this forum while looking at creating a North American biotope aquarium since I wanted do something a little unusual, at least for an aquarist from this side of the pond. I was particularly drawn to your smaller native species: Pygmy Sunfish, Killifish and Livebearers etc.

​Unfortunately many North American natives now require a special license to own or sell in the UK, effectively stopping their commercial import. Even most legal species are quite rare, so i've got my work cut out for me.

​However this forum is a great help for the care of the species that I can keep, so I'm glad to have found it.

Welcome, and good luck finding the ones you want.  I know there's some folks keeping Heterandria at least in the UK.
