Fish Pics in Dark

I was checking to make sure my lights were all out tonight — we’d had some power outages, and I also sometimes flip a timer switch and forget to reset. Anyway, I was surprised by a couple things, and thought I’d share.

First off, I added more air, restored flow, and cleared surface plants to allow more light to the Banded Darters. Wow! This male is really colored up with nice minty green stripes…


You can compare him against a tank mate on right, behind some greenery…


I’ve also been trying to capture how my young Rams I’ve bred and raised are starting to color up now, and snapped shots of these two sleepers…



And of course, just because it’s always fun to harass another College dorm at night, I just had to peek at these dreamers…

I can see you have an affinity for the super multicolored fish. You have some stunners. I love the Darters though, those are so very cool. 

Yes. I’m a sucker for color. To a question I once asked him at a Q&A when he visited our Fish Club, Cory said, “There’s always going to be that old guy in every fish club, sitting over in the corner, who is just in love with some rare little brown fish…”

I’ve tried to be that guy, but it’s just not me. I love vibrant color!

Absolutely love them rams! The blue dotting, purple hue, and their golden bodies. The darters are so cool, when I set up a native tank they will certainly be at the top of my list for stocking. The color difference between the two darters is crazy are they both males?

Thanks! With the Darters, I’m not positive on the lighter colored one. It’s either a female, or a non-dominant male.
