Can someone identify please

Recommended Posts

Hey all. Took my kids down the local creek netting for something ANYTHING. Just something to keep the kids entertained. We were catching a heap of these (have attached a few photos.) 

i have done a bit of googling and I think they are South American mozzie fish. Gambusia affinis. 

 

Can someone please either confirm or deny this?

thanks for the help!!!

Ok. So they are a pest species. Is it even “legal” for me to have these as feeder fish then?  Have them in a separate tank doing a “cleanse” have treated for worms and given a multi cure. Was intending to use as feeder fish
