What kind of fish is this?
A friend of mine had this drop out of the sky right in front of her place; it was dropped by some bird of prey whose eyes were larger than its talons. All she knows is that it's a sucker fish about 16 inches long. Looks kinda catfish-like or carp-like to me. Anyone here have more clues than I do?
The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of the act

0When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
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.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

Probably something with catostomus as its genus name.

madagascariensis has it. Catostomus catostomus longnose sucker. Very unique in the fact that they have a transpacific distribution and are native in Asia and N. America.Support your local ichthyofauna - buy a fishing license!
