".....has unfortunately mentioned these fish as Florida Flag
Fish. The actual common name is American Flag Fish (the male
has the coloration of the American Flag - not the Florida flag). Latin
name is Jordanella floridae. They are not guppies. They are native
to Florida, hence the species name. Flag fish are very effective at
eating filamentous algae, and they are IME peaceful community
fish which stay smaller than SAEs. You can see a photo of the
female at this site:"
