I put them in a small tank along with some of the creol darters for
compairison. They don't seem to match anything in Fishes of Arkansas.

They are about the same size as the creol darters 1.5 - 2 inches

Their peduncle is thicker than the creol darters

They are dark with many small red spots on their sides.

The anal fin is orange

They have a light line on their back from their snout to the first dorsal.

Tail dark margin then orangeish

1st dorsal dark margin, a thin orange line, a thin dark line

2nd dorsal dark margin, most of the rest orangeish
