Klaus is right about studfishes being harder to catch; the hardest of the
lot, I think, is stellifer which is both cagey and extremely athletic. The
northern studfish, catenatus, is very similar in many ways but somewhat
easier to catch with just a dipnet in my experience.

And I didn't realize that Charlie's fishroom is kept way warm; my chrosomus
are kept around 68-70 F and dimly lit, so that their colors have a "deep
warmth" to them. I keep them with some Coosa shiners (N. xaencocephalus) who
seem to have the same habits and preferences.
