The same male may spawn with several females. For example, in an effort to establish a more viable population, pebble nest associate Phoxinus cumberlandensis was bred in aquaria with a man made pebble nest, and milt from a breeding male river chub was added to induce spawning.

Your employees and shareholders. Its diet consists primarily of aquatic invertebrates. This encourages the growth and decomposition of plant life, which in oxygen-depletion and decreased water quality. Males build a cup shaped depression that they build up with pebbles that can be as large as 1—3 feet across and inches high. The bottom of the tail is lined in white.
In late spring the breeding male builds a pebble nest close to the bank of the stream in low to moderate current. Lastly, its anal fin with 7 rays has no spines.
Dams can also trap the stone and gravel sediments and keep them from replenishing the waters below.
