>>> [Lucania goodei] That has also been recorded twice now in Arizona too
where they have
turned up in places with pupfish. We always assumed they came in on
vegetation as eggs. They tend to over run and reduce pupfish numbers
which isn't good either.<<<

Interesting! I've never thought of bluefin killies as "invasive." USGS and
Fishbase show introduced populations have been found in the Carolinas and in
California but do not indicate any impacts.

Went back to the hydrilla tank this morning and found 2 more subadults and 5
youths. Setting those up in a separate tank in my wife's office.
