Ive kept this fish for a while now, and have not gotten it to spawn in
freshwater, how I keep it most the time. They live fine in soft water
even, which is odd for brackish fish, except a strain of fundulus
confluetus I have that were from a freshwater local, and I have now through
successive generations acclimated them to tannin stained soft acidic water,
and thye still have the awesome colors! I am trying to get marmoratus to
spawn in fresh water, but no luck yet, but this generation is still small.
