Does anyone have experience keeping and/or breeding the gold-spotted killifish, Floridichthys carpio, or the mangrove gambusia, Gambusia rhizophorae? I am taking a collecting trip to Florida in February and these two species are on my potential wish list. Are Floridichthys as pugnacious and territorial as sheepshead minnows? Will they readily spawn in mops? Are mangrove gambusias just as hardy (and nippy) as their inland cousins?
I haven't tried keeping any saltwater tanks in almost 20 years... but these attractive little Florida species have got me thinking I should try again.
