Red River Pupfish, Cyprinodon rubrofluviatilis, into the Arkansas River drainage suggest the potential that Fundulus zebrinus may have been introduced into the Arkansas River drainage as well. More

The only pupfish I've kept before were jordanella floridae and this weekend I went out collecting here in Oklahoma and brought home a ton of red river pupfishes (cyprinodon rubrofluviatilis). I set up a 30 long outside and tried to match the salinity (they were at 1.008 or higher) and added some plants from some of my aquariums (hopefully they survive the salt for awhile). More

Red River pupfish abundances were positively correlated (P < 0.05), and smalleye shiner abundances were negatively correlated with conductivity (i.e., salinity) (P < 0.05). Conductivity decreased and turbidity increased with stream order (P < 0.05). More
