Central Mudminnow-Killbuck Marsh, Ohio I had no idea this species underwent such a transformation when in spawning mode...I was absolutely shocked. A typical individual only displays shades of brown and black. If you have any of these awesome fish nearby, I suggest checking them out! They dont hold this coloration very long! Photographed and released on site.  Central mudminnow,Geotagged,Umbra limi,United States Click/tap to enlarge Species introCountry intro

The central mudminnow is a small fish in the family Umbridae of the order Esociformes. It is found in central and eastern North America in productive waters. It is fairly tolerant of low oxygen concentrations and, as a result, it is sometimes the only, or one of a very few, fish species present in waters susceptible to winter or summer kill.
