Wild aquarium fish in NZ

Recommended Posts

Finding more detail on the Waipahihi fish.

It seems the guppies and mollies were wiped out before the mid-seventies.

Around the mid-seventies the swordtails were put in there. Originally they were orange, but soon reverted to the green wild type. The stream was surveyed in 1999 but they were not found. To my knowledge they haven't been seen since.

Is there a Taupo fish club, and/or some fish nuts that have been in Taupo for a long time that might know more?
