Subject: Question about breeding shiners

Have shiners of the genus Luxilus [eg. bleeding & crescent shiners] ,
Lythrurus [eg. rosefin shiner], and Notropis of the subgenus Hydrophlox
[eg. rainbow shiner] been bred in captivity? Do they [and Phoxinus]
regain good coloration/breeding coloration after acclimated and keep it
for extended periods in spring and summer?
