Aww man. I have to go through all that to find out which species I have. I
guess I will not bother them and just call them stonerollers =). It seems
they grow slowly. The original has been in the pond for a couple years and
is still only four inches ( I think it was an inch long when I caught it
inadvertently with some feeder minnows). I put in another dozen round
about. It would be fine by me if they spawn in there some year. I don't
know if my riffle habitat is large enough though. There is not alot of depth
to the gravel in them areas either. Maybe they will adapt and just use
substitute areas like the blacksided darters did this spring.
