    I bought so small feeder ghost shrimp for my fish and when I got home I noticed there was a strange fish in the bag. I took it back to the pet store but they couldn't ID it and told me i could do what I want with it. I think its kinda cool but I wanna make sure its safe before placing it into my tank. Her are a couple pictures I took. It looks like some sort of fresh water goby I think but IDK its about an inch long and really thin. kinda walks/ shuffles across the bottom doesn't seem to swim much. mystery fish 1.jpgMystery fish 2.jpg

    I don't know what he is but he's cute! I have chain loaches, they kind of walk, perch on things. Maybe he is some kind of loach?

    I know my wife thinks its cute too ^^. I guess I could see it being some type of loach. Google isn't really helping me to ID it. I really hope someone here has seen this thing before.

    Hi :) i think its a swamp darter, i catch from time to time. I'm pretty sure they're peaceful and should be fine with other fish.
