Rob, it might be an interesting experiment to spray paint some buckets black
(or wrap them with duct tape), then collect silversides and put some in each
type of bucket (white/semi-transparent and black/non-transparent), keeping
everything else the same. Maybe the black buckets will cause less stress,
perhaps if you put black lids over them right away and don't open them until
they're back at the nature center.
