Hello everyone, I recently caught some fish in a creek and took some pics. I don’t really know what they are but they were found in a shallow creek around 4 inches deep. Could anyone help me identify them?

Hard to say for sure, but it looks like some type of shiner. Check this out and see what you think:

Probably a Coosa Shiner!

try searching for dace. I'm up in New England but if they are the same kinds I through into a 75 gallon tank I'd say put them back. They went from guppy sized to about 6 inches in a few months. They ate everything in sight and fouled the water horribly even with 2 big canister filters on the tank.
