The male's body turns yellow/amber, and the stripes go all the way
up to the operculum. The outer band on the dorsal fin is a very
dark blue - almost black.

This particular stream gets very hot in the summer. But the water
is as clear as glass. This fish definitely likes strong current and
prefers large cobble.

Whenever I see an old lady slip and fall on a wet sidewalk,
my first instinct is to laugh. But then I think, what if
I was an ant, and she fell on me. Then it wouldn't seem
quite so funny.
