>>>The most success I have ever had with bluefins was
when I placed a plant order with a florida plant farm
and some bfk eggs hitchhiked on the egeria. By the
end of summer I had hunderds of bluefin killies.<<<

I have had the same experience. Bluefins and Florida flagfish sometimes
show up here in plant cultures started from samples taken in Florida. I
assume that the eggs of these two species are particulary adhesive and
resistant to dessication (since the samples are shipped wet but not in
water). I am a little surprised that golden topminnow have not appeared
with them as stowaways.
