Re: Can anyone identify this fish #2
The pic isn't very clear at all, but from the shape of the head and eye position I think it might be a mudskipper. These fish have very specialised requirements - most importantly and area of land as they spend a lot of time OUT of the water. The water in the tank (about 1/3 of the tank volume) should be brackish (slightly salty) too. Brief article about them here.
