American Fish Adjectives

Can you name every adjective that is used in the common names of freshwater fishes found in the United States?
Fishes without an adjective not counted
Hawaiian and Alaskan fishes included
Extinct fishes excluded (sorry Harelip Sucker and Whiteline Topminnow fans)
My best has been done to include most splits and accepted undescribed species
