Caribbean FW fish?

I am just curious, are there any fish collected for the trade from the islands of the Caribbean? Do they have any distinctive groupings like cichlids or tetra groups? Anyone have a biotope tank from here?

I'm not sure of any off-hand, but you could probably peruse and see what you find out. I know Byron has some SA biotopes, but I'm not sure about any Caribbean types...

There is freshwater on the islands, so there will be freshwater fish. And as Johnny mentioned, some are listed in our profiles (the origin of each species is given). Livebearers occur on the islands, and Corydoras aeneus I believe on Trinidad--going from memory here.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
