Re: NFC: Rainbow Darters

Probably will spawn any time, as soon as the females are ripe.  Watch for
sudden weight loss and remove the adults then.  They bury their eggs in the
substrate.  A finer gravel would be prefered.  Fry can be reared on baby
brine shrimp.  They take a while to hatch and become free swimming.
Depends a lot on temperature.  They will be "pelagic" for a while, then
sink to the bottom as they grow.
