P.S. Sajjad, no sailfin shiners are known from the Illinois River,
far as I know. Do you still have it?

No, I don't have it anymore. It was lost during an Ich outbreak
soon after that trip. That taught me not to take too many fish home.

That fish had a tall triangular dorsal. Both dorsal and caudal were
iridescent. It may not have been a sailfin. As you see, my fish ID
skills are well-known and widely respected.

Come to think of it, this was collected either in the Wabash River
or the Embarass River. I still have pics from that Summer 2000 trip:
(included are pics of late Claus Sutor, the unbeatable Elmer Guerri,
Larry Page and several Illinois/Indiana NANFAns)
