I was sorting through some trip photos and found a few that I'm not 100% sure on.

Is this a black bullhead? Looking at anal fin ray count and chin barbels that are not pure white colored like most of the yellow bullhead I find around here.

Initially thought this colorful fish was a longear but think I might see some green sunfish mixed in. Hybrid perhaps? Most of the greens around here aren't usually this colorful.

This is actually from a trip last year. Thought it was a juvenile common carp but upon further review wonder about a wild goldfish.

Thoughts appreciated.

I'm not totally sure, but that looks like a goldfish.   It has the detached dorsal fin and rounded lower jaw without barbels.
