can anyone identify my fish? #1
hey, i know the pic isn't great (sorry) but if anyone has any ideas then i will hopefully be able to take a better one.
This fish is currently 4cm long and i have had it for about 3 weeks, have been trying to find out what it is online with no success.
If anyone knows then please enlighten me as i would really like to know.

thank you very much

Hi Dotty, welcome to FK

I sure can identify your fish, it's a Gyrinocheilos aymonieri, commonly known as a Chinese algae eater amongst other names. Here's some info on them-

If you have any other questions please just ask away
