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.
A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?
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!
