Does anyone have any experience with these? I'm wondering if they could be adapted to freshwater, or water with a minimum of sodium.

Yes Bob they are a marine/tidal fish, not many people have succeeded with this Killi. it can if you do it slowly can adapt to even fresh water or brackish.It needs a well oxygenated tank and plenty of room, can be a nasty little critter. Bob Bob oh Bob! They can be very territorial. several females for each male. I have never kept this fish but friends of mine in the Sun Coaskilli Club have. I will call one of them and get a little more information. Where did you pick that fish up from or from whom...... Niko

HiYa Nick. Thanks. I haven't picked any up yet. Someone mentioned an expedition for one, and I'm debating whether to bring some home or not. Since they have an attitude problem, they might fare well with my mbuna.

Hey Bob when are you planning to go on this adventure. I think that the Floridichthys might kill the other fish in your tank. One must remember that it is a saltwater fish and fights dirty!LOL It is a salt water Pupfish if you plan on acclimating it to fresh water it has to be done very very slooowly. They can be found in Tampa Bay,it is a seasonal fish Aug-Sept.is a good time. Let me know when and where! See you at the Auction. Niko
