Re: NANFA-- Rainbow shiners spawning

Fri, 9 Feb 2001 09:32:56 -0600

Klaus, I obtained some Rainbow Shiners, yesterday. It looks like I have 1
male and 3 females. I would like to try spawning them. Could you please
tell me what you did to successfully spawn yours? If anyone else has
experience in spawning them please let me know. Thanks.


I thought everyone might want to see what rainbow
shiners look like when they spawn. These weren't
taken at the height of color as the male gets even
reder and more intense blue. Paul Sachs was kind
enough to offer me space to host these pics.

water temperature was 61.4 F.
