Since these 3 species are all in range here I run into them from time to time. I was curious if anyone had any quick identification keys to distinguish between them. The ones I have run across are typically very small juveniles, not more than a couple of inches. I get that redfins should have red tinted fins but I'm unsure if that is a requirement or not, since juvenile fish don't always show adult colors.

Thanks in advance.

There is this old thread:

If you search the forum, there are a few threads on this. If there isn't an existing key to your liking, you can probably put one together using the info scattered here. If you do, I'm sure others would like it!
