My wife was telling me about a fish she used to have when she was a kid, she doesn't know the name of it, but she said it was yellow and was in the shape of a ball and had 2 fins and a tail fin, and a small nose. She describes it like a rubber ball with a nose eyes 2 fins and a tail. Any one have a idea what kind of fish that could be?

Could it have been some fancy variety of Goldfish?
I don't think so the way that she describes it, it doesn't sound like a variety of gold fish.

no it was not a parrot fish it was a fresh water tank. I know this is a weird question and very hard to answer, the only way I think I will get an answer about it will be from someone that has or has had that fish and knows what I am trying to describe.

Or ... your wife would have to search some online encyclopedia of fish with pictures, or a book (encyclopedia) with fish pictures. Once she sees the fish, she should immediately recognize it. It's really hard to know which fish it was from the verbal description alone. Pictures (or scientific names ...) help best, lol

Do you know of any good online sites that I could go to try and find it?

Could it be a pufferfish? You said that the fish's shape was a ball.
