I'm not buying the majority-rule blacknose dace ID. Is the fish still alive
in a tank? Can you check the lower jaw and/or get a rough estimate of scale
size? I even tried magnifying the image 400x in Photoshop (darn, too grainy
to see scales). The mouth just looks too "squared-off" to be a Rhinichthys
to me... more like a small stoneroller, or as a way-out-there guess maybe
even a Dionda...
