I was playing around on fishesoftexas.org, and I managed to locate my exact little stretch of river, so I started flicking through the list of darters in hopes of IDing a former catch. Turns out they were Etheostoma pulchellum, who don't seem to have a common name. Does anyone know anything about their care? Anything other than just typical darter care? What would be an ideal M/F ratio, if I can manage to tell them apart?
They would be going in a 70g indoor container pond. And yes, there's a high-flow area, in fact half the pond is set up for darters- reasonably high flow, no plants in that half, rocks to hide under/around.
For anyone curious, this is my usual haunt: http://www.fishesoft..._name=undefined(Set to "hybrid" and zoom in until you see San Gabriel park, slightly southeast of Lake Georgetown. I usually fish right by the big dam, or slightly upstream of where I35 crosses the river.
