    I was watching a youtube video on the worlds worst aquarium (which the conditions where awful no doubt about it) however there was this fish I just couldnt get off my mind, I have no idea what it is! I googled everything under the description sun when it came to it I just couldnt figure it out :(

    ps sorry if this is the wrong thread to post this under I just couldnt think of which would be the best one to do so; im fairly new XD wtf is this fish.png

    Its a lungfish, though our lungfish experts will have to let you know what exact species this is ;)

    African Lungfish, one of the Protopterus species, I think. These guys survive the dry season by burying in the mud and using slime to make a cocoon in which they can live for months. A little dirty water isn't likely to hurt them all that badly.

    Keep a lid on the tank or you might find them walking across the floor!
