Is anyone familiar with the breeding habits of the Red Shiner? I have a
male that is in full color, Tubercles and all, and he appears to be
carrying something around in his mouth. Are these eggs or possibly fry??
What should I do? I have him in a tank with several other Red Shiners,
both male and female. Should I leave him alone or move him to another
tank? There's not much cover in the tank for the fry to hide, if that's
what they are. Any help is appreciated. I've never bred these fish
