Re: Most Beautiful Cold Water Fish...
I can't offer great pictures, but I would vote for the rainbow darter or the orangethroat darter (okay, almost any of the dozens of North American Etheostoma darters!), the pygmy sunfish dirtydutch showed us, Aphanius mento killies, white cloud minnows, paradise fish (really nice in a pond, right up to the ice) and the red-bellied dace I catch here in Canada, behind beaver dams. I wish I had had a decent camera when I used to keep dace - what a fish.
jmurray has a really nice oranda there. They aren't my cup of tea, but that is a nice one.
