Rainbow minnows from bait store
Posted 07 May 2011 - 09:32 PM
They are currently in my 20L tank in quarantine for my 55 later. I noticed that the rainbow minnows average 3-4inches and are thick. They look like rosyside dace, but they dont have the black patches. Some have more red than others.
Also, I think they gave me a dogfish too thats 4-5inches.
I live in MN and got these rainbow minnows from Blue Ribbon bait store.
I'll post a video or pic soon. Just took a pic of the potential dogfish and one rainbow minnow, but it came out horrible so I wont be posting for now.
Anyone know what it could be for now? I assume they are native to MN, hence they were at a baitstore. I was hoping they would be rainbow shiners or some type of dace.

Also I think the minnows that I got are redside dace. I was hoping for them to be actual rainbow minnows but Dave are fine for now too. Thanks all.

If it turns out to be a dogfish don't kill it, there are a lot of people that would want one.

What are we calling a dogfish? I always heard that common name refer to a small shark.
Dog fish are needed to chase all the catfish.
Honestly I wanted to make a post here once on regional names for fish but I wasn't sure if it would be "serious enough" a post for the page so I never did it.

Again, my first reaction was that it was a bowfin, but now, it doesnt look like one. What is it?
