Well, there are many fish that are used as being feeder fish. So basically, it could be any kind of fish. But within the Gambusia genus, both holbrooki and the affinis are used as feeder fish. At least, overhere in Europe.Do all of them wind up being sold as feeders? Or is more likely to see the first two, but not the third, for instance?
Overhere in Europe, both G.holbrooki and G.affinis are introduced in waters, to be honest.The common Gambusia holbrooki found in creeks is the one used for feeder fish. Most of the others aren't found throughout the world so rarely if ever get seen by the average hobbyist.
That's what they do...Wow spot on! I had to move her to my larger tank as she was nipping all my guppy tails in my 29g Very cool though, never heard if a mosquito fish!
A couple of times at a local garden center, they thought that they had some kind of disease in their guppy tanks (females and males are separated overthere). Because their fins were torn and ripped. And they've been treating those tanks with meds. But each time that happened, I've seen mosquito fish swimming in there with those guppies. So, I told them that it wasn't a disease but those mosquito fish were the cause of those damaged guppy fins.
I'm still keeping the G.affinis overhere, btw. Right now, they're swimming in an outdoor tub in the backyard.
