Charles Anderton and I caught fish which looked a lot like this. (I'll
check when I get back home). This was in near Ft. Worth. 

IANAI (I Am Not An Ichtyologist) and I kinda thought that we collected
blacktail shiners.

Nice pics. It's difficult to get good pics of an aquarium. And, you may
not want to crowd the Red Shiners so much. These fish need some room. They
also like some flat rocks in the tank (they lay eggs in the crevices
between flat rocks).
