NANFA-- Juvenile bowfin
Tue, 08 May 2001 08:34:05 EDT

Last weekend as I was trying to collect some better plants, I saw a large bowfin in the shallows slowly swimming around. It looked as if it had just spawned, as its fins were all red and beaten up. It was swimming with a large(300+) tight mass of 3/4" black fry. The fish were swimming around its head, and seemed to be its own offspring. I netted 7 for closer inspection, and they really do look like bowfin fry. The larger ones are lighter in color, while the smaller ones are jet black. I currently have 7, does anyone want to trade/buy these fish? I am getting rid of a lot of tanks/fish, as a very bad kind of algae has infested all of them, so I can not have any more fish. So, if anyone wants them, E-mail me. I also have other fish I want to get out of here. __Dan Marshall, MI
