First one looks like it might be a red shiner(Cyprinella Lutrensis) or perhaps a ribbon shiner(Lythrurus Fumeous). Not sure of the second one.

Could any of them be brassy minnow?

I say they are all five of them red shiners... lateral line starts in the same place for all of em and they all are deep bodies... and they just look like red shiners.

I am pretty sure that the first 3 are the reds, the other 3 photos, unsure of. The lateral line dips deep to the belly and anal fin on the first three, but not near as deep on the last 3.

The first 3 look like Red shiners. Especially 1 and 3. The scales on 2 aren't as prominent but I think that may be artifactual and still probably bigger than you see with Lythrurus umbratilis which occurs in your region too.

The mouth of 4 and 6 is subterminal. Could be a Notropis or Hybognathus genus of your region. I'd check Petersons and get a photo tank shot next time if possible.

Ok so these 3 still have yet to be identified. Possibilities are sand shiner, emerald shiner, brassy minnow,plains minnow, Western silvery minnow, bigmouth shiner

Like Jason mentioned, a photo tank would be a big help. I really don't know what you have there, but I am 100% certain there are no brassy minnow's in the bunch. Nor are there any emerald shiners. #4 could be a sand shiner.

 

I believe many use these for small minnows. https://www.containe...ductId=11001063
