Fish Folk Posted March 22, 2022 Share Posted March 22, 2022 So I stopped by my LFS this week for sundry items. My friend, an employee, beckons me back. “Hey! You’re into curiosities! Check this thing out. It came in from Florida with the crystal grass shrimp. It looks like some kind of Goby.” Lo and behold! It was a Darter. Definitely some Etheostoma. Now, I’m not sure exact species. If a female, they can look alike. But my initial guess is… maybe a Johnny Darter, Tessellated Darter, or Fantail Darter. Anyway, they gave (her?) to me… I put her into the Dace & Darter tank at home. I noticed one of my young male Rainbow Darters got very colorful today! (Sorry for bad photo) Love these U.S. Natives! 11 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
