Hi Peter,

Red shiners are crevice spawners. Good article in Copeia early 90's I
think, by Steve Vives. Best substrate was, as I recall, a pair of
slates with a slight separation between them. they will use other
substrates, and Vives got them to spawn on a mop of threads and in a
pile of marbles as well.

Good luck, Dave
