    It looks like a salt water croaker.

    First one is the fish in question, pic taken from the fishbase link. The second is an atlantic croaker, a common salt water game fish.

    I thought it was a saltwater fish as well. That's what I catch off the coast of north carolina in the summers.

    Yum!!!
    Dinner.... we catch those all summer.

    Really not sure what species the OP is showing but it does look like our Atlantic Croakers.

    If closely related, they do get rather large....we get them up to 16 and 22 inches.....and they they get larger than that.

    Clown Loaches were food fish until they made more money being sold as aquarium fish. I imagine there are still some who still use them as such.

    I think most of our loach, eel and gourami population are food. DG are sundried into chips, oscar is prepared like pan fish and plecos are scraped out.
