No, I'd say blacknose or maybe even some population of speckled dace (less
likely though). It doesn't have the nose of a longnose dace. Colors aren't
too dependable for identification especially in aquaria. And there's the
camera effects as well. Because of the likely baitfish route for
introduction, backnose dace is more likely. The lateral stripe that goes
through the eye to the tip of the nose helps with ID a little. I'm always
up for correction, though.
