> Jim,
> Hey. We have a 55 gallon native minnow tank that has five green sunfish,
a bunch of stickelbacks, and a few different darters. There are some
plants, too. I noticed today, that at the top of one plant, a couple of
blades are wrapped together with duck weed roots, and there's a batch of
eggs inside of them. A stickelback is always swimming by the eggs, so I'm
thinking that they belong to it. Also, over the last week several of the
stickelbacks have changed color from light brown to almost black. I think
that it would be pretty cool if those things hatched, so I'm wondering if I
should pull the sunfish or any other fish out in case they want to eat the
eggs. What do you think? Thanks.
