I already removed all of the guppies, as part of a recent tank relocation...
although I did notice a drop in the reproductive rate of the guppies... may
be the creek chubs were taking advantage of the free live food... they
certainly did grow quickly...

I will have to take a closer look at the (not?) stonerollers... I just
jumped to a conclusion... bad habit... but they could certainly be blue
heads... I will investigate further my Peterson's for identification keys.
