Thanks all. Yeah really looking forward to that Matt. I may even splurge and
get a housing for my camera tomorrow. Worth it?

That'd be great Bruce. I didn't realize how many species we did there. That
site was just amazing. Unfortunately, in my "I gotta get home" haze, I didn't
write down the abundances!

The blotched chubs and streamline chub are doing exceptionally well, I'm
really happy about that. I hope to get a few more insignis and maybe even try
a 4 pack of amblops. I think having the current in the tank really makes or
breaks those Erimystax and Hybopsis species. Now they just wisk around
gleefully in the current with the shiners and longnose dace :)

Something weird came in that Buffalo River gravel too. Looks like a little
mushroom that "wags" or "flops" its head back and forth while it ascends into
the water column??? Some kind of worm, maybe an inter-stage parasite. If I
was a fish, I'd eat it. I got pictures, but they don't tell much, if that
description doesn't already tell you everything.

Hey! No Percina! Or Noturus! Hmmm.... I bet we can break 30 once we move
down into those glides below the bridge.

I hope the water levels cooperate.
