Rhinichthys osculus, speckled dace. Every population tends to look a
little different, this one is one of the oddest ones I've seen, had a
wierd banding pattern, doesn't show up as well in the pics though.

Desert sucker, Pantosteus clarkii The two are hard to tell apart until
you have seen a few of them.
