Longnose dace

The Longnose dace lives in the demersal, freshwater, pH range: 7.0, dH range: 10 - 15 environment.

The longnose dace is found in muddy and warm, clear and cold, streams and lakes. The largest longnose dace are about 6 inches long. They are well-adapted for living on the bottom of fast-flowing streams among the stones. Longnose dace eat mostly immature aquatic insects. More

The Banff longnose dace, Rhinichthys cataractae smithi, was a diminutive (about five cm. long) version of the eastern longnose dace, its range restricted to a small marsh fed by two hot springs on Sulphur Mountain in Banff National Park in Banff, Alberta. More

Longnose dace are inhabitants of high gradient streams characterized by swift flowing riffles and pools with considerable currents. They are bottom dwellers feeding extensively on chironomid larvae and other aquatic insect larvae. More

the longnose dace and the river chub is incorrectly described as a new species *1474,3017,2251*. It will also hybridize naturally with the common shiner (Notropis cornutus) and possibly with the blacknose dace (Rhinichthys atratulus) *2269,2273*. More

history of lacustrine longnose dace is basically the same as that of riverine populations. Some observations on habitat use by fluvial longnose dace are available for B.C. More

The longnose dace is confined almost exclusively to the Eastern Broadleaf Aquatic Subregion in the northeast corner of the state. More
