sure looks like a mirror shiner to me. long torpedo type body. triangular
caudal spot. big eye... blunt head. males are very impressive w/ an enlarged
colored dorsal fin. see them in the hiwassee and that region.

i think that cave fish is most intriqing.

im not sure about your tricolor id tho. tricolors... i see them a lot in the
conasauga and live in the cement pond. dorsal fin has more patterns.

tn snubs... vary a lot. could be the cumberland sub species. very green

where did you encounter the swannoa? the only place ive seen them is in the
little pigeon.
