I know I shouldn't really bump my own thread, but I finally got around to posting some video of the fish (and his little brother) that started my question. If any of you Suckers out there can take a look at the video an identify the little Sucker, I would appreciate it. By the way , regarding keeping him alive in the aquarium, he seems to be doing pretty well. He is still smaller than the darters (as you will see in the video), but seem sto have adapted to eating just about everything including pelleted foods.

Nice video.

I tried to keep a giant Northern Hog Sucker I caught fishing once but that didn't work and it died.

Same went for the V-lip redhorse sucker I tried to keep in 2005 but I had to let that one go. It was already several pounds when it was caught (I never weighed it though).

I guess if I ever catch a small juvenile sucker I'll try to keep one again. But mostly I catch the bigger adults.

I thought the group came to the conclusion that these were not suckers at all but some kind of minnow. Or maybe I'm thinking of another post. Anyways if that was not the case I'm saying now that those are not suckers the placement of the anal fin is too far forward for them to be suckers.
