    Hard to see, pics small, mixed with rocks, and poor eye-sight. Looks like a darter, but not sure.

    Looks like a darter to me as well. Not clear enough to identify the darter though. Lots of possibilities but to narrow it down some, check out florida native darters for comparison and you may get somewhere on identifying it.

    It's a darter. Impossible to identify without knowing what part of the country it came from.

    No, the Malabar loach has only one dorsal fin, the fish in question clearly has two dorsal fins.

    My best guess is not a loach but a darter or goby as everyone else has said
