NANFA-- Mexican Yard Fish

Hi, all. For my summer project I'd like to learn more about the fishes of
Mexico. NANFA is officially concerned with the fishes of Canada, the U.S.,
and Mexico, but few NANFA members are knowledgeable about Mexican fish.

Each summer, I put fish in my back yard tubs, because they grow faster than
do fish kept inside.

Does anybody know of any suitable candidate fishes from Mexico? My main
objective is to learn something new about a fish that I'm unfamiliar with.
Cichlids are interesting, because they practice parental care.

I've thought about the Texican cichlid, but since they're so prolific and
common, I probably couldn't find homes for any offspring come Fall.

Anybody have any suggestions, either cichild or non-cichlid?
