Native fish question...

Just wondering if anyone here keeps or has caught any of these in the wild? They're flagfin shiners, Pterenotropis signipinnis. If so, what part of the state did you find them?

Just trying to get some info because I'm thinking of starting a native tank.

I've seen something similar in the everglades area stomping around but it looked more like a killifish of sorts

That's a pretty cool looking fish. I may have to look that one up and find out more info.

Pretty sure they're native to the North Florida/Panhandle area, as well as Alabama, Missisipi and maybe Louisiana.
