Re: NANFA-- Odd breeding colors on a rainbow darter
Tue, 10 Oct 2000 23:11:46 EDT

ive noticed both redlines and rainbows change colors almost as i watch them.
especially redlines especially while snorkling. when you turn over a rock or
they come out of a crevase/shadow/overhang they will be very dark. and then
lighten up before your eyes. they will also develope diagonal slashes much
like the rainbows... toward the rear portion of their body.
generally tho both species/males keep their colors year round in a
aquarium... tho not the vibrancy of the wild.
how are the mosses plants doing? most die pretty quick. tho i still bring
fresh ones home. they glean everything off them. micro micros.
