On a trip a few weeks ago to the Charleston, SC area I collected some least
killifish (Heterandria formosa) from a ditch near my motel. In brought back
10 or 15 to Kingsport and put them in a heavily planted 10 gal tank. I was
hoping to get a colony going, problem is that seems I only brought back
females! I wonder what the chances are that some of these will drop some
young? I have had them for more than a month and no babies yet.
