Getting familiar with variation across a species range is mighty valuable too ... no need for disappointment.   I'm amazed how different the white shiners in the Roanoke look compared with the deep-bodied ones in the Neuse and Cape Fear ones that i see more often.  The Roanoke ones look almost like eastern silvery minnows, except for the obvious large mouth and tall scales. (referring to your Dan River post yesterday).

That's what I thought they were, Eastern Silvery Minnows, I managed to get one adult one in a deep pool in the Dan.
