  1. I’ve decided to explore several species of native U. S. Darters. Currently, I have a single pair of Ohio native Etheostoma caeruleum (Rainbow darters). I’m ordering a second pair to bring out color in the males, and increase visibility. I’ve upped the flow in this aquarium significantly by adding a small powerhead. I’m also ordering two pairs of Etheostoma zonale (Banded Darters). I’ve got a second tank prepped for them, also with heavy flow boosted by a small powerhead. There are excellent articles available to read up on these species from the NANFA website. My particular interest is breeding fish. Here is one on breeding the Rainbow Darters. And here’s another on breeding Banded Darters.
  2. Ive never kept native fish before and Im looking to get into it. I want to have a nice looking tank with interesting fish that fit in a 10 gallon. Any ideas? I would also like fish that I could purchase, as I dont really want to collect my own. Thanks, Jack
  3. Dad & Fish Folk Jr. went Darter catching today again. This week, we’ve caught some special Darters in our native waters… And Dace… And Sculpins… Today Fish Folk Jr. caught three Darters today…
  4. Anyone on the forum keeping U.S. Native Darters? Very excited to be getting a male & female pair of Rainbow Darters this week. Got a tank set up for them. 68-degrees F, Lots of filtration, lots of flow. Snails to feed (in other aquariums), along with frozen blood worms (which the seller tells us is what they're fed currently). The occasional chopped up earthworm is also on the menu. Got their dedicated 29 gal set up. Planning to also add some lovely Rainbow Shiners. Lots of Greens going in the back left corner -- probably Valisneria Americana -- to wobble in the current flow. Added a small HYDOR water-fan / powerhead to push the water through the tank.
