Re: NFC: orangethroatdarters & redbelly dace

Lukes orangethroats are nicer than ours and his dace
are pretty good too... let me know if he cant supply
them and I will fix you up as I am sure he will
contact you right away.
> I would definitely like some of the southern (or
> northern) redbelly dace.  
Mark Binkley has OS sunfish for sale...they are $5.25
per fish and come from Minnesota Muskie Farm.  I got
three pair from Mark and they are doing fine.  These
are young fish and it will more than likely be summer
before they color up nicely.  You can find his site
at-------> http://www.jonahsaquarium.com/  He also has
a number of other fish.  By plains killies I can never
remember if you mean the kansae or the sciadicus. 
Luke and I will be collecting sciadicus next summer
for sure.  I have several locations where I collected
them and a very pretty form of SRBD last summer.  I
would send you some now but I had a disaster when I
returned exhausted from the 550 mile trip and did not
see the fish were in trouble until too late.  I now
treat all my fish with triple sulfa and it works
really well.

I would stay away from bullheads, they are really
rough on your fish and may even eat them.  Try a
couple of young stonerollers...they make their living
eating the algae off the rocks in the bottom.  I
havent tried them yet with plants as I wonder what
they would do to plants. 

Also, young spotted suckers, if native to California
make good aquarium inhabitants and poke around the
bottom a lot.  Be aware that Fundulus kansae or
zebrinus may be a very aggressive fish in some

If you are interested in some fish for your home
tanks, that arent native to Colorodo, over the course
of the next year I can get you some dynamite fish.
