Speckled darters started spawning 2 days ago and the Tuskaloosa darters
started today. Both are spawning in pans of gravel and the Speckled is
also laying egs on the bare glass bottom of the tank (never seen that
before). Speckled female also has some color. Three blue patches on head
and gill cover and very light blue bars on her side in the pattern that you
see on the male. These fish were collected in the Sipsey fork at the
convention in Huntsville last spring.
