I caught a few darters in a Indiana creek a few days ago and am unsure what type of darters these are. I believe the colorful ones are rainbows and the the non colorful ones are juvenile and female rainbows. I have no idea what kind of darter the dark brown and black striped one is though. Thanks for the help!IMG_0907.JPG IMG_0908.JPG

Yep, the dark on is a sculpin. And looks to be Cottus carolinae. The darters look like Orangethroat darters.The teardrop below the eye is a give away as Rainbow darters do not have it.

Thanks guys! I have been feeding them frozen brine shrimp and bloodworms. Anything else I should be feeding them?
