Casper's mystery shiner post has me looking at these guys again from the 'Mountain Minnow' tank (the ones with the iridescent stripe).  I know the photos are terribly crisp, they just wouldn't pose for me!  Here are a couple of photos with the tank label.

The fish in the center of your photos look like Tennessee shiners to me.  Could be something totally different, but Tennessee shiner is just a guess...

Is this the tank in Pine Knoll Shores? When you first enter the building?

I'd agree with Tennessee shiners.

Based on his other posts I would guess fort fisher, not pine knoll shores.

Yes that's the one, I stand corrected it is the Pine Knoll Shores not the Fort Fisher Aquarium.

I stand corrected it is Pine Knoll Shores.  Don't know how I got Fort Fisher in my head.

Could they be inland silversides? No, not inland silversides! Sorry..
