Yeah, euryzonus have the really broad stripe on the side. I think that they
tend to get a little bigger than either notatus or olivaceus. The creek I
collected in over the weekend seems to be my best local source for
olivaceus, but the ones I have are fairly small, none larger than maybe 4.5
cm. I have some big notti courtesy of B.G.'s collecting expertise, hopefully
they would feel up to spawning if I set them up right...
