unknown creek fish in Mississippi

hello, all.........i am cathy, and i am new to this group.........i have 8 fish tanks in my house, and 1 turtle tank outside of my house......i have several fish (minnows) that i have caught out of a creek arround my house, and i have never seen anything like them before....i will take pics of them but do not have any of them now.........the fish in question, is about 3 inches long, and as thick as a sharpie pen......it has large lower fins that it uses to perch himself up on, he turns his head from side to side, indecating to me that he is a hunter.........he has large top fins, and the tips of them are red, tail is red also.........he is brown with red and aqua greenish blue sploches on his boby.......i have been feeding him tiny shrimp that i have caught out of the same creek.......could any one out there tell me where i may find a web sight that will show me pics of creek minnows, or fish in it.......................thanks

By the way, welcome aboard.
Hope you enjoy the forum.
