About This Fish

The Riffle Minnow is found in the Mobile Basin in Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee. As the common name suggests, Riffle Minnows live in rocky riffles of creeks to medium rivers. Like other members of the genus Phenacobius, Riffle Minnows resemble small suckers (family Catostomidae) with a long and cylindrical body, as well as fleshy lips.
