Could someone please check out the unidentified fish photos at:

I'd appreciate if anyone could definitely identify the "blackstripe"
fish (blacknose shiner or blackchin shiner). Also, is that juvenile sucker
really a sucker or some exotic. Note that multiple photos of the
unidenfied fish are displayed. Thanks in advance.

Also, I am seeing an odd species of larva in my outdoor tub. It looks like
a black and white striped caterpillar with a long tail (10x the body length). When moved into
the indoor tanks, it stays suspended in the water column but with the tip of the tail-in-the surface.
It's as if the larva are suspended from the water surface by the tip of the tail (maybe a breathing tube
of some kind?)
