That's awesome Ken. It would be great to see some photos of the fry as they develop, especially the inscriptum.

Dustin, I've tried a couple times to shoot video of them. They stay near the back of the tank where it is darker and with food etc... floating in the water it is hard to see them. Hopefully, as they get bigger I'll have more opportunities sooner rather than later.

That's an awesome list of spawns! You going to sell any of the fry? :)

Wow Ken... That is quite a list.  Many would like to hear how that occurred.  An AC article would be sweet and appreciated by all 500 readers.

I'll try to get something together. Just a bad time at the moment. Mother In Law just passed, which is delaying a collecting trip to Va. But I'll see what I can do.

Fair enough :). Just let me know if you have enough fry to sell any from either inscriptum or jimmycarter.

I'm sorry to hear about your mother-in-law; my condolences to all.

On a happier note, there must be something in the water out there! Congrats!

Thank you Matt. She's been laid to rest now. Delaying the trip a week so we can gather ourselves. The fishroom has been an escape at times when I've needed it though. ... Maybe I can find a bit of time to at least get an article started.

Ken - I wish you strength and peace during this time.  Please know that if you can put your fish spawning experiences paper or speak them into a voice recorder, there are those of us who are associated with American Currents, as editors and associate editors (and I am sure others within NANFA), who are willing to work with you to edit, re-write, transcribe, and/or co-author the article(s).  Congratulations on effectively creating the space for so many darters to spawn.  As Casper stated, I am sure that many would be interested in hearing the details.

 

Of course this applies to others as well who have important information to share, but may not have the time, skill, or confidence to submit a finished AC article.

Thank you.... I also am sure I will be needing some advice regarding the article. I assume I should do the artcle using word?

 

Oh, I have added Percina roanoka to the list. First time I have gotten fry from them! Shocked me as I had been looking towards the bottom of the growout tank and they are swimming mid water where the algae growing on the glass makes it difficult to see them. That and the fact they are quite small.

Yes, MS Word is the preferred format, but most word processing or text editor formats are acceptable.  Even hand written text or voice recorded files can be transcribed if the material is strong enough to justify the effort (e.g., the process of breeding unique fish).  

 

Also, don't forget to submit your breeding success to the NANFA BAP program.  This is an underused program but an important part of what NANFA offers.

Word works for me.... :)

 

By the way, as of about 15 minutes ago I added Etheostoma zonale (Banded darter) to the list, again....for this year.
