NANFA-- Re: Fish Base and SRBD offspring

Steffen Hellner (
Mon, 30 Jun 2003 14:45:09 +0200 is just great! I am using it for years now and started a
collaboration. It will be worth for you folks supporting it as you all are
at front with the NANF and your contribution will surely be highly
appreciated, esp. on locations/occurrences, color morphes, biology, ethology

BTW: In my pond I have a nice bunch of about 100 Southern Redbelly daces
from KY (many thanks again, Geoff!!!). They continue spawning even at water
temps of 26 0C and a little higher. Have three stages swimming of about 3 or
4 weeks old down to freshly hatched (meaning from 1,5 cm down to 5 mm). And
the Fundulus catenatus don4t seem to bother them as I recently found the fry
swimming around in the open water between their parents and the Fundulus.
The pond must provide very good food for that. So by this I hope the SRBD
will be established in Germany. And I am much more positive to be able to
breed the Cardinal Shiner, and Bluefin Shiner if I can get hands on them.
