    Gulf Coast Pygmy Sunfish/Brown Darter

    Took some pics for an aquabid auction today and some turned out pretty good so I thought I'd share.


    Brown Darter



    E.Gilberti Male





    Young male/sub colors

    Adult male going dark

    Same fish in a brighter light, dim lighting/background/tannin water seems to make them stay dark.






    Adult female with a belly full of bloodworms.

    What are the facts? Again and again and again--what are the facts? Shun wishful thinking, ignore devine revelation, forget what "the stars foretell", avoid opinion, care not what the neighbors think, never mind the unguessable "verdict of history"--what are the facts, and to how many decimal places?

    Thanks Wes, the pics are tinged a bit yellow because I've been adding tannins to see if it helps them get more comfortable. I have always kept them in regular soft tap water, so we'll see, they come from some nearly pitch black water sometimes.

    Maybe one day, if enough people start breeding them in aquaria they'll probably be common fare in the next decade. They spawn readily so it shouldn't be much of an effort.
