Re: NANFA-- F. diaphanus

I've also raised F. dispar and F. notatus. Spawning diaphanus completes the
Michigan killis. In an earlier e-mail you stated that diaphanus was a true
northern fish. They sure are different from the other two they both don't
spawn until the water is about 70 f. As far as egg production is concerned
dispar are like the diaphanus. The notatus were different I had three pair
in a 15-gallon with floating mops and got many eggs daily for two months. I
raised hundreds of notatus but only 7 dispar. If I remember right euryzonus
are the broad stripe? If so I'd expect them to react similar to the notatus.
I also brought back notti and olivaceus from the convention and along with
some blairae I got from BG hope to spawn them in the spring.
