got this fish and another on craigslist for free. I know what the other one is but not sure on this one. the lady said that it was a cichlid but it looks like a betta but Im not sure about that! I can try for a better pic but it seems very skiddish towards light. dont know if its just cause I put him in the tank or not?

HIGHLY doubt it is a betta. TO ME, it looks like a gourami, but it doesn't have the tell-tale whiskers. It kind of has the shape I might expect from a barb type fish. there are tons of barbs, Ill see if I can figure it out.

Looks like a rainbowfish, barb, or gourami body. Odd looking fish, sweet find tho. GL, maybe somebody else has a better idea.

Lied, think its a "butterfly koi" or similar type. This pic is pretty bad, but looks a LOT like what you have.

yes it does very similar! i was looking at pics on yahoo and all the ones I saw small and large have so whiskers?? the one I have has none or look like there has ever been any in case they had been bitten off or something. also the fish is still very skiddish towards the light. it wont come out unless the lights are off.
