Fish ID

Anyone know what this little guy might be? It's not anything you'll find in a pet store (I don't think). He came out of a local stream here in Alabama. He's currently in my "local bio type" tank.

Local river bio type

This is my 49 bow front with planted HOB filters. It's a cold water, Cahaba river bio type with sculpins, some sort of darter, a pickerel (I think), and chubs. Still a work in progress.
