Re: what is this fish ? #2
Hi and welcome to the site. I honestly haven't got a clue, I'm not very good at ID's and the picture is a little blury. How big is it? how old? can you tell us anything about it or its behavous?

I'm going to guess its in the Astyanax family from what I've found onf fishbase.org,
http://www.fishbase.org/identificatio ... de=&spines=&fins=&c_code=
these are my best guesses:-

http://www.fishbase.org/summary/SpeciesSummary.php?id=51062


Hopefully now I've bumped the thread someone with more knowledge will join in
