Yes, sorry I just realized that I should be giving other people a chance. I am sorry. You can go next! SouthAmericanCichlids you can go next and after that whoever guesses the fish right will get the chance to put clues out and go next but SouthAmericanCichlids you are the first to go on the list whether you get it right or wrong!
Also, no, incorrect!

More clues:
1. It has a black stripe body with red fins and a tan-orange body.
2. They like quite hot temps again
3. they are clowns
Clown fish?

This makes me think bettas and guppies, but bettas are from Asia and guppies like high pH

ooo!! SM1199 I was going to ask:

Hi! I was wondering I saw a thread two years ago started by you. It was a very sick betta. Here is the link: Rescue Betta: Popeye, Fin Rot, Swim Bladder, Bloated | 363699 | Betta Fish
I was wondering did he make it? Is he alive today?

Nope. Next hint: It has 3 wild varieties, many non-wild varieties , but is usually classified under one general name.

At least, I am speaking over all, not just a specific color variation, because that is almost impossible without telling you, "Oh it is gold" or something like that.

It makes me think of hybrids and I know a lot of people frown upon flowerhorns but they’re actually awesome! So I think flowerhorns

Skirt tetras?

Edit: if this is right then someone else can do the next one. I won’t be online much in the next few hours so I’d rather someone else gets to do it

I had him for another month or so after I made my last post on there. He had his good days and bad days. If I'm remembering correctly, his fins did improve, he got around to eating and swam a bit more upright for a while, though his buoyancy issues never corrected. Eventually he re-bloated and stopped eating without showing any signs of wanting to recover (surprisingly, never any pineconing) and I decided it would be most humane to euthanize him.

Sorry, I don't mean to derail the thread! Continue on! I'm still clueless about this answer.

Nope, next hint: Named after a real person, and is considered a very delicate fish.

Btw: one variety of the fish likes not super hot water, but almost all like it hotter, I forgot about that variety. (Sorry, I'm not very good at this))

My guess is discus, and specifically Heckel discus, Symphysodon discus heckel, named after Jacob Heckel, an ichthyologist who discovered heckels.

The three (technically 4) 'wild' varieties are Greens, blues/browns, heckel, and red(could be lumped with browns) which then are further classified/described by collection point. The domestic varietes are the many different patterns you see on discus, but I beleive all are based off snakeskin or pidgenblood discus. Or possibly one more i am missing.

I give birth to live young, I have a face that resembles a bird and that is a hint towards my name. I stay at the top of the tank, where I can jump and get bugs. I am not an ordinary fish you would find at petco.

This type of fish is in the genus cyprinids and has a suckermouth.
Most species are native to Asia.
It is an abused fish that is sometimes used in salons.

No, another hint, this fish is great at eating algae and you can see zig zagged lines from where it has eaten.
Another hint since a lot of fish do that. The most common species that has been kept was introduced the the hobby in 2005.
