Default What fish????

I created a thread earlier on asking your opinions for a new thread where you have to guess the fish and i got alot of positive replies.So i have decided to go forward with it.
Basically i will start by taking a picture of a fish and the blanking it out and revalling a small bit every 2-24 hours depending on when i can come online and they livelyness of the thread. To cover the picture just open it with paint or whatever art programm you Americans use lol and paint the background black leaving a small part of the fish visible. Then uncover it slowely. It sounds complacated but once its been done a few times all you lot will get it im sure.

The first person to guess the fish either repeats this process themsleves or if they dont want too do it then pass it onto someone else.

Finally each picture is allowed ONE clue and one clue only and it can be of the person who put the pictures up choice but be careful not to make it too obviouse.

That just about wraps it up so if you have any questions ill create another thread called "WHAT FISH questions".


Any way heres my picture.
i found it very hard to reveal it bit by bit so its a bit scrappy but as long as its hidden it should be ok .

Hope you all enjoy this.

I dont think that picture shows enough of the fish to even guess, but based on the dorsal fin alone I will say is it some sort of cichlid?

No wait, Its a sailfin molly isnt it?

It definatley looks like a ciclid, but the two feeler things (don't know what they're called) makes me think of some form of a labyrinth fish... Hmm...

The only thing that four minutes of Google brings me is the Apistogramma borellii, the Umbrella Cichlid. Yes? No? Maybe so?

either a cichlid a sailfin molly or a gourami of some sort, and its definitely not the middle one, or at-least that's the least likely.
