    So I am setting up a tank to house some rainbow darters I will be receiving. This is what I have so far. I have a decent current flowing from the right to the left with smaller gravel on the right side and larger rocks as it goes to the left. I currently have some of my pond goldfish in this coldwater tank as placeholders. The tank was already cycled with endlers, as you can see a few are still in there. :) Does this look good to everyone?

    Thanks,
    Jesse

    Nice tank! I have never heard of dwarf darters before. They look pretty cool :)

    Not familiar with the fish but I like the tank man.

    Hello again, everybody! The fish are in the tank! I got them for only $4.00 a piece from Zimmerman's Fish. I bought 4 male/female pairs and they threw in an extra pair free of charge. (Shipping's only around $12.00 bucks from them, too.) Brian is truly a great guy to do business with and he even catches the fish right from a river near him... So these are wild caught!! :) All 10 were alive when they arrived, too! Here are some pictures. Enjoy. :)

    Also, they eat thawed bloodworms very voraciously. Their fins are a little scratched up but they should heal quickly. They are very curious and looks like they jump rather than swim to eat food floating by them which makes feeding them like watching someone throw a football down range! Lol :)
