Rainbow Shiner - Notropis chrosomus

Price: $5.00 each

"One of the most colorful North American minnow species the Rainbow Shiner Notropis chrosomus is an amazing peaceful community setting aquarium fish! We have a batch of tank raised young ready for sale right now, these popular fish probably won't last long though so get them while they last! They like some flow and gravel substrate as they are naturally found in small headwater streams. This stock comes from a hatchery strain that has made its way into the aquarium trade my adults are not wild caught so unfortunately I don't know the original locality. They are very easy to care for and feed well on flake food and can be supplemented with various frozen foods."

Southern Redbelly Dace - Chrosomus erythrogaster

Price: $5.00 each

"Good community stream fish that is very active. These tend to go in and out of color frequently when well cared for. They often color up and show off the bright red bellies in the morning and then it fades away mid day only to fire back up as light fades in the evening. They can also color up after being fed or after water changes. Also relatively easy to breed in captivity, ask for details if you want to give it a try. Feed well on flake and frozen foods and do best with some algae or plant matter supplemented in their diet. "
