I will second and third the quarantining of shiners caught in that type of water-in-that temperature.

I believe two summers ago it was I brought some redfin shiners back, and this was april, and what they brought back with them decimated everything in my tank. This year has been the same experience for me when brining back rosefin shiners from pools with water in the 70s. Nothing lasts over two days and it spreads to other fish.
