Among environmental parameters, tested for tolerance of the red shiner, the species survived hydrogen ion concentrations between 5-10 pH units, salinity of 10 ppt, dissolved oxygen values of 1.50 ppm, and thermal shocks of T+10 to T-21°C. Tolerance of the red shiner to any cne or a combination of the above mentioned parameters, in addition to its plasticity of feeding habits and reproductive capability, undoubtedly relate to the success and widespread distribution of this notropid within plains streams.
