Got a Bunch of these guys from a bait shop. They were being sold as emerald shiners.

Assuming it was caught in Ontario, I'd guess Common Shiner, Luxilus cornutus.  It looks too deep-bodied and blunt-snouted for an Emerald.

Looks like Luxilus...more than likely common. Commons have bunched little scales behind the head but its hard to see any of the scales
