And Scott, if you ever need to cull some, I'm starting to dabble again, now that my new place is coming together.

I heard there was a feral population in California, but that the pond dried up.  Also, there is supposed to be a feral pop in central Florida, if you go to the desert fishes site, it is shown on a map.

Hopefully I'll be able to confirm that soon. Need some beani for my research and not having to spend money purchasing them or time raising them would be awesome.

I have a confession. I'm a cichlaholic.

There is supposedly a feral population about an hour or two away from me. I hear they are in a park pond. I'll have to check it out sometime.


Just seems weird that a species virtually unattainable for years...a "holy grail" was a characterization seen on other boards...is swimming and breeding in US ponds there for the taking.  Not out of the realm of possibility, but I'll believe it when confirmed by facts.

Beani show some amount of color variation in their pattern depending on the location. The popular one in the hobby is the 'honeycomb' one right now, but I've  seen the white beani you talk of as well for sale recently.

Isn't there a white beani? Or atleast 1 from a diff locale?? Rapps had some that were like over a $100 a few months ago.

There is some reference from Ken Davis on MFK to a story that a pond of beani were discovered in an abandoned fish farm. I have not heard or read of this as being confirmed, but if true, this presumably is adding to the available supply during the last 10-18 months.  Prior to that, I saw that a fellow named Joe actually collected some wild specimans in Mazatlan.  Also, some wild beani were also referenced from Rusty and some were sold through Rapps.  I had thought that the recent supply was attributable to breeding from these introductions, but maybe the story of the pond is not a story.
