What is different about the rainbow darters you collected? I have a
strain here from Puff Creek that are knock outs and are so different than
other rainbows I have collected in other parts of the state. Mostly color
differences, but also how hardy they are. Most rainbows here are text book
, toned down to nearly bland unless spawning, where as the Puff Creek ones
are deep blue, all over, all year unless severely stressed. And they survive
the stream froze shut in winter, to hot nearly dried pools of stagnant sewer
like water in the summer in low water years.
