Bluefin killifish - lucania goodei, and Swamp killifish - leptolucania
ommata sound like what you need. Most everything else gets bigger than
that, and needs more room to produce alot of young. I would think if you
buffered the water up a bit with hardness, adinia xenica, lucania parva and
fundulus luciae would work. Those sound exactly like the tubs I have great
luck raising elassoma in. Except last year when something came through and
ate them . I am thinking snake of frogs because of the situtation there.
Badis badis types, diapterons, and the small rivulus like xiphidius would
work well too.
