Helfrichi Firefish (Nemateleotris helfrichi)

Hi folks,

Need to find out some information on breeding these or any of the dart families.

Has any done this before?

Thanks

I bet they cost an arm and a leg in the UK? I think I have a link around some place that might be of help to you Steve. If and when I do find it, I'll cross post here and on www.marinebreeder.org
