    What a great little set up Colin, i love it.

    Were these a lot more widespread a few years ago? I’m sure we used to catch these in a stream near our house in Berkshire when I was about 7or 8 – or do you think that was another type of stickleback?

    Great looking tank, and fish! Looking forward to seeing them in breeding condition. There’s a good population of threespine stickleback at the St Fagans National History Museum in Cardiff. I was there earlier this year and you could plainly see the males holding territories, and their breeding colours were intense and beautiful

    The adaptability of sticklebacks, and their evolutionary traits, have made them interesting to science as it seems that they are used in a fair bit of evolutionary research.

    Aren’t they related to pipe fish?

    yes, but i am not sure how closely? I have also seen Indostomus being sold as ‘armoured stickleback’ before. (definitely something I’ll try soon
