Hi Mike, Ah you caught them while they were active. See, I have no
expectations because these fish came out of recently flooded streams in
fall, and were all awash. Their lips were pink and that's about it :) I'm
encouraged that they'll maintain this color.

Joseph, if they spawn, it'll most likely become fish food. I may try and
move them to another system if they get-in-it, but for now, I don't have the
time or energy to rear anything. Really, I'm kind of a big picture guy.
And I really suck-in-following through on the details :)
