Underwater Fish Video

Just for fun. I keep some native North American fish in aquaria as a hobby. At a recent national convention of the North American Native Fishes Association in Greensboro, NC, a member took some video of some or our very colorful native fish spawning over a gravel substrate. This is not pro stuff...just a waterproof point and shoot camera, but I thought some people might want to take a quick look just for fun. Some of our native fish right here rival any tropical fish you have ever seen. These are Redlip Shiners and Mountain Redbelly Dace. Take a look!

Fun to watch Rick and nice to see some foreign species we don't see in Norway. I guess it wasn't the fish laughing :)

No, I guess not. I was surprised to hear the people talking as well, but I'm pretty sure this is a very shallow stream.

I must confess, those are some pretty colorful fish. Are they cold water or warm water fish?

Sound travels through fluids and solids just fine, that is why we get camera noise unless we use special mounts, eh? I'd rather it was the fish!!

They are both relatively warm water species. They are found in the foothills and mountains of western NC and VA, but both will do fine in an unheated aquarium at room temp. On the eastern side of the Blue Ridge Mountains here in upper east Tennessee we have a sister species to the Red-lip Shiner called the Saffron Shiner. A school of a hundred spawning in a small stream is a sight to see.
