    Freshwater fish ID

    Post by zeketaz on Sun Jul 17, 2011 6:44 pm

    Alright here's a new thing. Since there are so many different species of fish and I would like to learn more and help more people learn about them as well... I will post a picture of different species of fish and everyone can try and guess what it is. If you guess correctly you get to tell us a little info about it. So here I start.

    Yellow calvus
    A shell dweller from lake Tanganyika, they get along 4" and are pretty mellow, they have a very interesting defense mode, their scales end is sharp point so they lean their body into the attack and the attacking fish ends up with a very torn up mouth!

    Yes it is a Demasoni. They get up to 5" are semi-aggresive and are from Lake Malawi.
    Now for the next fish. Whomever gets this right gets to pick the next fish to guess. It can be any fish as long as it's freshwater.
