I've been visiting a small stream/creek at Nerang there are small red cheek
Bows and Red fin Rads and a variety of small gudgeons, i haven't ventured up
stream to see if the Rainbows are any larger(do they get larger or smaller
up stream?)
Anyway the creek (Crane) is also the home for sword tails and i'll say
guppys because they look like the fish my son has- small males, large
females with black on their belly.
How can I help the natives.
I know down stream towards Nerang river the creek is choked and there is
only ferals, I also know they are travelling down Nerang river to mix with
the blue eyes.
I have 2 question, one is do bows (male) normally colour when they are about
2cm long?
Second is how can I help the natives survive?
