Hi, all. Does anyone have any experience keeping golden shiners?

Do you have any idea how large they'd need to be before they spawned?

Someone mentioned that they eat duckweed. Would they be inclined to eat
other, more desireable aquarium plants, like valisneria, crypts, aponogeton,
and java fern?
