Since you couldn't be with us in NC, I'm glad you were out in the water somewhere! (... while we were catching redline and gilt darters, saffron and fieryblack shiners, etc). 22 sp sounds pretty good for a lake! What's the shiner? Looks very much like N. petersoni in NC.

Interesting how many lake-dwelling darters you have in the northern states. In the Carolinas we have very few darters in lakes, I guess do to: 1) few natural lakes for them to have evolved in; 2) shallow littoral areas get too warm while deeper cooler layers get oxygen-depleted from organic matter decaying.
