My Blackchin shiners (Notropis heterodon) started spawning. The fish are
1.5-2 inches long and the eggs are huge 2.1 mm dia. The fish spawned within
the last 24 hours. The eggs are well developed with tube bodies already
warped around the yoke. I found 1 few infertile eggs last night and just
gathered 24 infertile and 35 fertile.
