It could be a form of eel, maybe a birchir? or dinosaur?does it seem to survive out of the water like that? Dinosaur eel will survive out of water, even play around.

Cody,
what you are holding in your hand is an adult inanga. It is indiginous to New Zealand. Inangas’ usually only live one year, they are bait fish.

I am not sure what I am going to use when I get the 100g for filters. I am looking into what I have to so for a brackish tank, for my 34g not my 100, I really love puffer fish and have heard they are finicky. I had 2 oscars but one dies a few weeks ago, their tank got unplugged somehow and the lack of oxygen is what got him I think. I am reall concerned about my surviving oscar because he has become soooooo aggressive, he tries to attack my pleco every chance he gets. I want to get him a new tank mate but none of the petshops around here carry oscars that would be big enough to tank with General Grievous. (my oscars were General Grievous and Datrh Maul. I have an Albino and the one who passed was a red eye I think) Any way, sorry I couldn’t be of help, maybe next time

cody,
maybe you should try feeding him some blood worms. If if is a inanga or galaxiis related they are carniverous. Maybe ghost shrimp or blood worms and krill are what he eats? thanks for caring about General Grievous, I am very concerned, he is just so unhappy :(

Cody,
I have a little yellow cichlid that is always swimming around and getting in the others business, it’s pretty funny because he is real small still and the rest are so much bigger in that tank. I have a 6 month old gold fish that is huge, you should see this ting. I have never seen an ordinary goldfish get this big! I think he is eating shrimp pellets I put in there for my dinosaur or something. Off hand, do you know how big cichlids get?

How many fish/tanks do you have? I really want to get a tank of glo fish. We have pink, silver and red, yelloe, and Orange at the sotre by my house. I think they would be really cool with a black light or a blue light over their tank. The firemouth cichlids look pretty cool. My friend Sheri has blood parrot cichlids I think is what they are called. They are mean though. they always want to bite each other. I love to sit and watch fish, it’s so relaxing, that’s why my fish are in the living room, for everyone to see. Any way see ya- Krisy :)

Well rit now i only have 2 that are up and runing my mane 45GL tank and my little 10GL that has a breeding group of ghost shrimp for my fish to eat.
also it has a few little wild fish that live around me.
I wouls like to start a new tank but im not sure wit type i should do and what kind of fish?
oh yea that sounds awesome. i love them glo fish but i cant find them for sale any where :( but yea wit a black light it would be really kool.
theres this place where i live and they have a tank wit glo fish in them and they put like broken glass and trash looking stuff in the tank....it might sound bad but it looks kinda kool like the fish are radioactive or something.
yea i like my firemouths but the ppl give me 2 males and they like to fight also one of them is biger then my oscars and he likes to fight wit them for food.
blood parrot cichlids?????is that the one that kinda looks like a weirdish goldfish?

yea i love just looking at my tank.the fish are always doing something new and are funny to watch sometimes.
i wish i could have my tank in my liveing room.but i dont really have my own liveing room to do wit as i wish seeing as i am only 16 but i still very much enjoy haveing them in my room :)

The wal-mart by my house sells glo fish. Have you tried there? I have 3 tanks right now, My 35 gal that is home to General Grievous, My 14 gal which has my dinosaur, giant gold fish and my cichlid ,and a 10 gal. that is for feeder fish. I want to get the 100 gal or 2, 55 gal. With the 100 gallon I will need some sort of external filtration system, maybe a stand alone support system or something, I don’t know, we’ll see.

 What kind of fish is this?

My dinosaur is a birchir eel. He is ways cool though. My little gold fish are kept separate because I want to make sure they are kept very clean so when I feed them to Gen. Grievous he doesn’t get any sort of disease. I also use the feeder tank when I get new fish to keep them separate from others until I am sure that they have no disease or parasites. I have spent too much money on my large fish to put any old fish in the tank with them. I feed Grievous 1- 1/2 inch gold fish, he loves them. Plus there is much less water changes now that I have him on all live food. The shrimp pellets make the water nasty and create planaria, I also really like watching Grievous eat, he stalks the little fish before eating the. His attitude seems to be getting better, he isn’t so violent. He came up to the side of the tank and just stared at me for a good 20 min. last night. It was like we were talking to each other. My husband thinks I am crazy, but I like chillin’ with my fish. He says I would probably hug the fish if I could, and I think he’s right. Something about caring for my fish just puts me at ease though, know what I mean? I get all stressed, but then spend time with my fish and everything is OK! Any way, I keep rambling on, I’ll talk to you later k? How is your algae eater doing? Pregnant? Hope not, that’s a lot of babies! ha ha Krisy

oh wow them things.there awsome but i was never sure bout them cuz i always see them trying to hid.....does yours stay out?ohh ok so u feed them goldfish.thats koolso do you breed your own goldfish or just buy them?yea thats wat i got my little like ummm idk but its like a 10gl but shaped weird.but it works and its only got ghost shrimp in it right now.
so when he eats the goldfish he just eats them hole? yea that sounds good cuz when i feed mine they will shred all the food makein tiny little pices of food flyin all around the tank and then i got to vacuum the tank very often.
oh wow planarias? i dont relly know much bout them other then they sux and u dont want them haha.
yea thats awesome my little guys are still little ones and i dont think they would hunt any smaller fish.but i love seeing other ppls hunt down fish like that and eat them its pritty kool.but i do love watchin mine hunt the shrimp and the shrimp will always try to jump out of the tank and they just chase them down till they get them.
thes kool i always see pic and videos of ppls comeing to the tank side and oppening there mouth and even biteing the tank.
hahahaha yea well i wish i could like pet them like a dog or cat but they always run from my had haha.
mhmm mhmm i know wat your talkin bout the little sound of the water and them just swiming around and everything just makes u feel really good and also helps me fall to sleep :) im pritty sure that "they" did a study bout this kinda stuff and it really does help lower ur heart rate and relaxes you.
no dont worry bout it they place is dead.i like hearing bout your fish it also helps me wit mine
haha my algae eater....well its still really FAT and moves a little at a time so im thinkin its pregnant..but sense i cant really find any help on that kinda thing other then its really hard to get them to mate in tanks......so idk wats up wit her
also im not sure if i should jsut b careful and move her to a diff tank just to be safe.or just let her stay where she is but if she gives birth all/most the babys will be eatin.and im not sure if thats guna be a good or bad thing?

I have fish like these in the creek that runs by my house. I live in Southwest Virginia and I have found out it may be a Sculpin of some sort.

Hey sorry to be so slow to respond here but I don’t post here much, noticed this thread, and thought I’d clarify the fish you have.

What you have is not an eel. Nor is it a fish from New Zealand, or goby or sculpin.

What you have is some kind of darter, a relative of perch, and native to North America. If I had to guess a species, I’d think maybe a swamp darter, but I’m not familiar with Florida fish.

I know alot of people who keep these in their home aquariums, and I hear they’re quite entertaining and almost "puppy-like" when their keepers approach.

It’s a goby no question about it. I have been keeping fish for many years. Check out www.aquaticsworlds.com if you are in to fish.

It’s a darter. Google "common goby" and you will see the dorsal fins are nothing like the dorsal fins on this darter.
