If they had just found some way to hop the divide from the Mobile Basin into
the Tennessee River drainage, then I'm sure they'd be in the Paint Rock. Of

have a hard time coming up with another small Tennessee River trib that's in
as good of shape (lack of silt, intact forest upstream, sensitive fauna,
etc.) as the Paint Rock, but there's several rivers with more darter taxa
