Jordanella Floridae: Florida Flagfish

Fish Folk

Recommended Posts

When you've got a tank with Hydrophlox Shiners . . . it's hard to imagine needing a "centerpiece" fish. However, we've thoroughly enjoyed a pair of Florida Flagfish (Jordanella Floridae) which coexist peacefully in the tank with our Rainbow Shiners. Took a few photos, and a 1-min video showing some pre-spawning activity (see below). It's hard to capture exactly how beautiful their emerald jeweling is. About the size of mature platys, these are an active fish for a non-heated, small U.S. Native tank. We have them here in a 29 gal with Rainbow Shiners and a pair of Rainbow Darters. They eat flake foods and frozen foods.
