Fish B=Snubnose Minnow (Pimephales notatus)Characteristics:-flat nose-black line extending on to nose
Fish A=Northern Studfish (Fundulus catenatus)
Guessing at Fish C= Goldfish (Carassius auratus)
C is incorrect. A is correctB - scientific name is correct, common name incorrect
I think roosterfish meant bluntnose minnow for for B. Also I think fish C is a bigmouth buffalo (Ictiobus cyprinellus).
David: B common name is bluntnose minnow and C is the Bigmouth buffalo - -which has a terminal mouth compared to smaller subterminal mouth in smallmouth and black buffalo
