RE: NANFA-- Plants, substrate, and Canidate sand darter.

I think it would be wise to look elsewhere for a less troubled canidate, your Honor. The canidate in question has been hammered on by habitat loss and degredation in nearly all it's range, is found on most State's Lists, and for the most part, you'd need to approach a real governing body to get the appropriate permits to have one in your possession, dead or alive.

If you can keep the fish at 75 degrees or less.... Have we discussed the potential canidates Rainbow (E. caeruleum) or Orangethroat (E.spectabile) darters? They're a more northern species, and do require more oxygenated and cooler water. If this can be achieved, I know of no other piscean combination of these oranges and blues (quite literally the Syracuse U. school colors) and the canidates have dealt with humanity's activity much more gracefully. If these temperatures are not an option, Sir, perhaps some of our Southern contingency could suggest Southern pool or swamp dwelling cousins?

When it warms up, I'll have piles of anacharis available for your court and constituents. However, in these temps, it will be a waste of shipping money.

So, to aid in the substrate discussion, lets skip
ahead to the next canidate:

Ammocrypta pellucida:eastern sand darter.

I think we all know the format by now.

Ammocrypta pellucida:eastern sand darter
