Guess my new fishies!

Clues:
1. One of the well-known 'sharks'.
2. Cyprinid.
3. Relishes mostly on insects and small fish.
4. Grows to 8-10 inches.

No pictures though but these clues will be sufficient.

Herefishy, Kateyoup and Daz won't be allowed to play.8) You three already knew that.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Nope. Red-tailed sharks hardly ever reach 8-10 inches.

Added clue:
1. Silver shiner.;)

'shark', rather than just shark, is it a barb of some sort?

They're not barbs but rather minnows although they are often called 'sharks' owing to their body shape and finnage.;)

Was the only minnow I could think of that looked like a shark.

Sorry to spoil your game...
