Jeff and I didn't have ANY trouble with them last year, but it had been a LOT
colder, and there wasn't cow-flash coming down the stream while we sampled
either. I've had about 1/3 pass on to the great Dace in the sky, but only 2
have been since the first night mortalities.

I haven't had a single problem with the three I brought from the Atlantic
slope, and those were in the cooler from day one. <shrugging>

I'm sure they're all going to die, though :)

My one experience with Rosysides (from Tishomingo county) was similar.
I lost a number of them in transit, and the remainder perished over the
next couple of days. They are either high-temperature or low-O2
intolerant, I don't know which. Or else maybe they're like brook
silversides and just die when you look-in-them.

Did you have any survivors?
