If any of you ever make it to
If any of you ever make it to Atlanta, go to the Georgia Aquarium. I was there in November 2010 and they had put up an exhibit about this. A lot of their funding comes from Georgia Power, so they're pretty proud. There's lotsa native roughies there, including a tank with about 50 robusts.......... My wife made me move on 'cuz she knew I could stare at roughies all day....... :-(

I just put up a post about M.

I just put up a post about M. robustum on the moxostoma.com blog, with this video. Thanks for posting this Deftik--it kicked me in the butt to put up a post with the link to the Robust Redhorse Conservation Committee site, which I've meant to do for a long time. The RRCC site has lots of good info and some good images. Click the link in my sig, below.
