Description

A group of four or five fishes found in Calleguas Creek next to CSUCI. They have a light green body heavily accented by black, which sharply defines their large scales. Their tail, pelvic and anal fins are slightly red. They appear to be a little over a foot in length. They are difficult to see from this iPhone camera, but let me emphasize, the black lines on their bodies are not lines or stripes or dots, but rather outlines of their scales, which make them difficult to find on any fish list. Their mouths may be below their body, possibly making them carps, but it is hard to definitively tell from observing then from above and they do not seem to match images for white or blue catfishes (found in this watershed)

Description from Wikipedia

The Cypriniformes are an order of ray-finned fish, including the carps, minnows, loaches and relatives. This order contains five to six families, over 320 genera, and more than 3,250 species, with new species being described every few months or so, and new genera being recognized frequently. They are most diverse in southeastern Asia, but are entirely absent from Australia and South America.
