I have lurked this forum for a few years but decided to sign up because I want to keep natives in my tanks from now on. 


I have a degree in wildlife management and forestry; I took several field biology courses and learned that field sampling and fishing are some of my favorite hobbies. It's difficult (and gross) to sample in downtown Boston, but I hope to move out of the city in the next year. 


In the meantime, I can try to keep and observe natives in my fish tanks. The only native I have ever kept would be Heterandria formosa. 


I look forward to learning more from your forum!

Hey, Welcome. Hope we can help in any way. We were all new to this at some point. New England area forum wise we have Joshua Jarvis and Mike Z. Also just a bit south we have Mike Lucas an Scott Schlueter, and a couple more great guys, whom I should look up, but don't have the gumption. They may have different "names or handles" here, but maybe they will chime in. I hope you find this whole thing as awesome as I have. I have learned so much from fellow members on line, and in the field. Made some great long term friends.Bottom line, I have just learned a lot. Good luck, and keep us in the know on what you are doing.

For some real fun pull a seine through the Charles along the bank by Harvard Square. Besides people gawking at you, you'll find banded killifish, Fundulus diaphanus, to be surprisingly common.
