Jordanella floridae (Florida Flagfish)
A deep bodied pupfish noted for its brilliant colours when mature, consisting of a scattering of red spots all along the flanks and shiny blue spots on the upper half of the flanks. The fins are delicately marked with red. Dark patches may be present on the flanks, but females also have a very distinctive small black spot at the back of the dorsal fin. Otherwise sexual dimorphism is limited to the slightly larger and stockier appearance of the males and their tendency to show brighter colours once mature.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
A superb aquarium fish suitable for both coldwater and tropical aquaria. Primarily an algae eater, these fish should be given a diet rich in green foods, particularly Spirulina flake and algae wafers. Small invertebrates such as daphnia and bloodworms are also taken.
This fish stays close to the substrate and behaves in almost every way like a dwarf cichlid. To encourage spawning keep the fish in groups and allow them to pair off naturally. Raising the temperature to 22-24 C will trigger spawning. Males guard territories, and after spawning guard the eggs as well. Once the fry become free swimming his work is done, and the fry should be removed for rearing elsewhere. The fry are easily fed on algae and liquid fry food.
