NANFA-- Wanted: Info on the flier, Centrarchus macropterus

I recently obtained several fliers, Centrarchus macropterus. Really cool
little guys. Actually, some appear to be gals who are gravid. The
males(?) appear to have white edging on the dorsal and anal fins and are
slimmer when viewed from above (not gravid). Has anyone ever seen anything
about the breeding behavior and nesting requirements of this species? I
would really appreciate any clues, even if it's just, "I think I might have
read something once..."
