That was the species of percina I was thinking of, blacksided darter.

unfortunalty the mudminnows are not considered killifish ( but in my
opinion with the new splitting of the killifish family they might as well
be because the different types have been so far removed from each other) .
If you have seen rivulus, you would see a greater similarity yet, heck we
could throw bowfins in there too HEHEHE. ( just trying to open up more
classes I could enter at the AKA convention HAHAHA) . anyway, the best way
to dfine muds from killis is the killis mouth is tubular, and the top "lip"
goes all the way around the mouth. the mudminnows mouth opens up like our
own, and can not be "extended" and the top lip is not found on the end of
the snout. If you are trying to get your mudminnows to eat prepared foods,
try Hikari discus pellets. these things kick butt. Muds wont eat anything
not kicking, but these seem to work! And no, I dont have a contract with
Hikari, although I should, as much as I plug their discus pellets I would
be a millionare.
