swamp darters...why not try a rainbow in your planted tank
The trick to any darter is to get them to eat something other than live
food. I would recommend trying Rainbow Darters as these are the easiest
ones I have ever had to train to take fd ocean plankton. They struggle
to the surface to feed and eventually eat a lot of different foods. I
keep them in planted aquaria and they do fine. I don't know about the
swamp darter, but rainbow darters are sure a lot better looking. I have
kept my rainbow darters as warm as 82 degrees Fahrenheit so they should
do well im tropical tanks kept in the seventies. I now have three
aquaria with rainbow darters that are planted, they do fine.
-> Has anyone kept swamp darters (Etheostoma fusiforme) in a planted tank?
