Mudminnows in Massachusetts

Anyway, I'll post pictures soon so they can be ID'd. I assume it would be OK to put mudminnows in a 40 gallon stream tank with blacknose dace? Or do they hate flowing water?

I remember catching some (not sure if eastern or central) in a tiny pond / large puddle near the UMass campus circa 1980. Easterns are typically slack-water fish, but I've also found them in pretty strong flowing streams too where there's dense plants, roots, and branch piles to provide a refuge from the flow. As long as there's some slackwater areas in the tank I think they'll do OK with dace and shiners.
