NANFA-- Guppies in South Carolina
Wed, 11 Oct 2000 20:03:32 EDT

Just a note to everyone that I accidentally caught a male guppy among some
Gambusia the other day. He was minimally colored with a spot on the caudal
peduncle and two oval patches symmetrically placed on either side of his
flanks behind the dorsal, red-colored. Down stream in a bend and a small
lagoon off to the side, I netted what I assumed were a group of Gambusia and
found five male guppies of various coloration from flashy to sombre. So I
guess there are guppies in our local stream. Whether they were dumped there
this season by someone or there is a stable population there, I don't know.

I thought I should report back since so many were kind enough to write me
about this. I got my NANFA welcome pamphlet in the mail this week.
