Does anybody have any information on striped shiner (Luxilus chrysocephalus)
spawning? I've got a bunch of them, and some of them seem to be getting
gravid. These fish are total pigs for food, grow fast, and seem to be
getting ready to spawn. They'll never be a big fave aquarium fish but they
amuse me, anyway... And Chris, I searched the AC index and no one has ever
written about them from what I can tell.
