Three Fish with one Stone

Fish Folk

Recommended Posts

This morning, I boxed all my Okefenokee Pygmy Sunfish, making their 20 gal tall cool-water tank available.

Now, at work, my Florida Flagfish have been terrorizing my Rainbow Shiners, preventing them from spawning.

So! I caught the Flagfish...


And brought them home to their new room...

Beforehand, I changed water in my Rainbow Shiner tank...


And enjoyed seeing them happy again...

And I did check the “Java box” for Flagfish fry, but nothing visible...


So! Flaggies have a love suite... Shiners have freedom to fire up again... and here’s to hoping the Okefenokee Pygmy Sunfish live happily ever after!

Are the Flagfish always a little aggressive? 

When mature, the _males_ are aggressive. I’ve heard females are calmer, and can be helpful with eating algae.


If you see them for sale, the female has a black dot on the back bottom edge of her dorsal fin. Male does not.
