Waxhaw New Shiner and Carolina Darter

whew! some of these are tough. No 1 might be the local greenhead, and I think there might be a mix of dusky (most of the them) and highfin (e.g. No 7). It's embarrassing to say that I don't recognize No 10 and 11.
Yeah I had a hard time getting good pics out in the middle of a grassy swamp area, its 96 degrees today too whew!
I think the most obvious ones are Dusky Shiners, I can't tell if there are Creek Chubs in there or not.

First one I'd guess is a Rosyside dace (smaller scales on front of body than Notropis have, and a faint red slash behind the gill).
Not sure if Dusky shiners get that far west; if not, then they're Highfins - nearly identical to Dusky, and far more common in the Piedmont.
10 & 11 may be bluehead chubs again.
