Hi folks,
I reviewed the archives and see reference to spofin shiners being "aggressive feeders" or "beating each other up"...
I have had a group of five for about a week now....they seem they are chasing each other constantly. Will this ever end? Will adding other species help? I have four fantails waiting in quarantine...I plan on adding brindled madtoms, one longear sunfish, a logperch, and two black stripe topminnows.
