Striped darter

The Striped darter lives in the benthopelagic, freshwater environment.

We also found several enormous striped darters in full color. Two of them had white spot patterns on their pectoral fins, very interesting. More

Thought it was a striped darter at first. When I first caught it, it had white spots on the pectoral fins. More
