Fieryblacks are probably my favorite shiner, if not my favorite fish period.
 In a contest just for striking appearence, I would put a big, colored up
male, up against nearly any other fish. There are other fish with more color
but a fieryblack with it's "rudolph red" nose, vivd red & black caudal fin,
head tubercles, and bluish silver sheen takes a backseat to no one!

These were not a fish I was real interested in at the convention, but after
watching them in my tanks, the displaying males are the most striking fish I
have ever seen. I figured they had to be spawning if only because the males
have maintained color and tubercles.
