Help with wild fishy identification? :)
I posted this over in the bettafish.com lounge but I thought I'd try over here as well. Does anyone know what these fish are? I have a creek behind my house that dumps into a lake. The lake is stocked with trout for fishing every year but I don't know what else is in there. To me they look like carp of some kind. At any rate, in the 5 years I've lived here I've never seen them in the creek.
We had a lot of rain and the creek rose pretty high. When it went back down, these guys were here. On the lake end there's a pipe that cuts off the lake when the water's low so they're pretty much stuck here. If they're creek fish, I don't want to move them, but if they belong in the lake I could rehome them. They stay together for the most part. They're about 9 inches long I'd say?
