    I caught this little freshwater fish in shallows populated mostly by guppies. It is a bottom feeder. It well camouflaged and stays stationary for long periods of time. When they do move, they are very fast (they zip by sprinting guppies). They like to hide when threatened. Most that I observed lived alone or in groups of 2-3. This one is a baby. Adults get to be about 2 inches. Any idea what this is?

    Good thinking, but it has two dorsal fins. That would rule out a minnow.

    Picture of front end as well as your geographical location would help.

    Looks like it has fused pelvic fins, so could be a goby. But a location would help a ton.

    My first guess is some sort of darter.
    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
    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?

    Scottish and REC are right. Goby, but that tells us very little unless you say where you caught it.
