I fed the block of bloodworms, and it was a frenzy, these guys love them so much. I'm thinking of getting a red wiggler colony setup, but I feel like my parents would hate the idea of a compost bin in our yard.

Backyard? I keep mine in my room, lol.

One advantage to being an old fart I guess. It's a surprisingly clean enterprise, and good for the environment.

But seriously, I hope the darters work out for you. I love them and they are like no other fish I know.

I love them so much, they are so cool! I mean they actively hunt in the tank, and If they breed, I might feed the young strictly live food so they keep that behavior in the tank. And they just look really good too! And you have your colony in your room? That's pretty interesting, got any pics?

Post some pics of those darters when you get a chance. I think the image file upload issue has been resolved *fingers crossed*
A US native unheated riverine tank (30, 33, or 40 LONG) would be awesome with a group of darters.

Thanks, you should try some, they are really easy to keep, as long as you have live/frozen food available, some of the species here get really colorful, I think there are some up there by Lake Michigan, but I gotta check my natives book when I get home. They are really cool and they actively hunt in the tank, seeking out the worms that are left over from the previous night, it's pretty fun to watch.

I have plenty of worms around! Many bodies of water are very polluted by me due to factories and steel mills.
