Yeah, I found it in the Alabama book. I had been told it was
Notropis, so that's why I missed it. This fish is sympatric with E.
buccata in this area, is known to inhabit Westville Creek, and I was
hoping to snag a couple.

I did get a number of fry (1/4 - 1/2 inch) which looked suspiciously
like winchelli, but they disappeared shortly after being introduced
into the tank. I saw a couple of them hovering near the submerged
filter and so I naturally assumed they got sucked in. But THEN I
saw a long-forgotten longear emerge from behind the filter. Geez, I
never see him so I had forgotten he was in there. Guess I know
what happened to the winchelli!

Whenever I see an old lady slip and fall on a wet sidewalk,
my first instinct is to laugh. But then I think, what if
I was an ant, and she fell on me. Then it wouldn't seem
quite so funny.
