True, while the swamp darters coloration does not match so many of the other
darters pallete of hues, they do get a neat green cast to them. Kind of a
glow. This added to the display and darkening of spawning individuals is
attractive. At our old place I had some in a ten gallon which was on the
floor near the door of the fishroom, which its door was right next to the
door leading out side. Even though I kept the fishroom really warm ( in the
mid 80's) that area got really cool in winter ( bad weather stripping) and
that must have induced a wintering of the swamp darters. I would guess it
was no lower than the mid 60's in the tank. Then when it warmed in the
spring, they went through the motions. I don't know if there was any eggs
or fry as a result.
