What fish is this?
Hi, I bought this fish cause I never have seen it before and thought it was unique. The employee at the pet store didn't know what it was. Sooo, what is it? Thanks

i don't know what it is but you cant go get a random fish
fish need specific water chemistry and tank size.
i would return it

It's a tattooed/dye injected platy.120g New World Cichlids ♦ 65g South-East Asian Planted Community ♦ 30g in-the-works ♦ 15g Tanganyikan Shell-Dwellers

Issues like this can be prevented by researching potential stock previous to getting a receipt.
This didn't turn out so bad but there are MANY things you could have brought home that are FAR more dangerous to your other stock than a platy.
Not to mention the variable water parameter/tank requirements already mentioned.
Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

If the employee at a fish store doesn't know a platy when they see one, it's time to find a new store!When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
