Dear FishBase Forum users,

Welcome to our new and improved site!

In the past, spammers have succeeded in making the forum unusable. Thus, in our aspiration to keep the site as simple as possible yet functional, we came up with this new version protected by a captcha system. We have checked and cleaned the database, keeping all good postings and pictures. However, note that the record numbers are tentative, we may need to change them in the coming months, and that the site is without registration at the moment. Please bear with us as we continuously develop this site to maximize service to fish enthusiasts all over the world. Feel free to comment on this version and make suggestions for improvements.

Lastly, we would like to clarify that the forum is for technical comments and inquiries that need scientific responses from experts in our team or other entities/groups that wish to share their knowledge on the subject at hand. If you wish to express your thoughts about our website and/or provide comments on our work, which don't necessarily need a response, then you may use our Guestbook for that purpose.

Enjoy the forum. Ü

Hello, I found your site through google. I am trying to identify two fish that I aquired from a private owner. I have been told that they are Golden Ram's, but the colouration and dorsal fin are all wrong. They apear to be of the dwarf variety. Not being a scientist I can not give you a spine or scale count.If I sent you a photo would you be able to help me identify these fish.

I have an aquarium (length 180 cm. , 70cm high, 40 cm wide) for 16 months. I had 40 tropical sweet water fish Like Gurami, Tetras etc. . Suddenly all fish were inflicted by Larinea or some other parasites and all died. I concider now to change the Aquarium. Please advise : 1. are cyclides stronger than the regular tropical fish (those I had). 2. The surface of my Aquarium was of large large brown or gray gravel stones . It is difficult to pump the mud thru them. Is it better to change to thin white gravel surface Thank you

Dear Colleagues, I would be happy if somebody please identify the names (scientific and common, if any) of the fishes, which are in the webpages. All these items were collected from an estuarine belt (Sundarbans) of Bangladesh. I have uploaded all the images of the fishes and if somebody shows interest, pl. write me so that I shall inform you the the address of the webpage. With best regards Dr. Bidhan Chandra Das Professor Department of Zoology University of Rajshahi Rajshahi-6205,Bangladesh

Fish ID help in Cuba
Posted on: 7/8/2008 05:31:00

I would like help identifying a fish I saw while working Harbor Defense in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. I am sorry I don't have a photograph but I can describe it fairly well. The fish was swimming on the surface of the water in late July. I have been doing this job for years and haven't seen anything like it. It was a small fish, maybe about the size of my thumb. It didn't seem like a slender fish, but it may have been, it seemed a little deeper bodied...kind of like those fat goldfish with the big cheeks you see at a pet store. It was bluish-violet and had fins that looked almost like trailing shoestrings. These strings were probably about 4-6 times the length of the fish. It swam very slowly like it's strings were a hinderance. I have spoken with some folks that scuba dive here and they can't tell me what the fish is called, but when they see them they are usually hidden in the reefs. Also, this sighting was at night.

11 foot Galapagos Flat Fish

Hi, I saw a recently discovered fish in a video the large fish lived off the Galapagos Islands, was up to 11 feet in diameter, and very very FLAT but swam upright. and had no rear tail, so it swam rather slowly, by wiggling. It was called something like "mastursis" but searching on it, I can find nothing. Anyone know it? TY!!

Posted on: 25/7/2008 07:50:00

Hey, I found a fish that had washed up on our beach a year or so ago. I couldn't identify it because it had been chewed up too much. It was probably about 20 inches long and had large, extremely sharp dorsal spines. It had big scales and looked like a parrot fish. I thought it must be a parrot fish until I saw it's jaw. I attached a picture of the top and lower jaw. I believe I'm holding it upside down. Does anyone know what kind of fish or at least family it belongs too. Thanks, Louis Johnson

This one has me puzzled. It most closely resembles an Amberjack (seriola) but that is not possible because of the length of its pectoral fin. It is almost certainly a member of Carangoides. Probably some sort of Trevelly such as Yellowspotted trevally but nothing looks exactly right. Any ideas?

I found this walking along the beach at South Padre Island in the Gulf of Mexico July 4, 2008. At first glance I thought it was a tooth, but now with suggestions from a few people, think it may be a bone of some sort. It measures three inches in length and one and a half inches in width. When first found it was black and grey in color. Now that it has dried it's white with orange specks. I'm completely oblivious to what it could be. Any ideas or site links that could help me identify this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

This is not a comment on fish base but to add some information. The snowtrout Schizothorax richardsonii is an economically important and dominant food fish in the snowfed streams of Garhwal Himalaya. I have studied this species for its reproductive strategies in two riverine environment -the River Bhagirathi and River Bhilangana, parent streams of river Ganga in Himalaya. The cryopreservation protocol for the milt of this species has been developed under ICAR funded research project.I have the project reports of the above work carried out by me on the snowtrout species. I want to submit them to add information. what I have to do?

Hello, I am a little bit confused. Last year and also several months ago I have sent pictures of 26 freshwater fish species to Fishbase (for the first time via e-mail to [email protected], second time via new on line system “upload your photos”). Although I still cannot find them on Fishbase web page, neither I see my name among fishbase collaborators, I have recently received an e-mail from a person asking me for permission for using my photo of Sabanejewia balcanica from following link Therefore I would like to ask, whether my pictures are physically on the Fishbase web page, if they are accessible and if so, why I cannot see them among the pictures of specific species (for eg. in case of Sabanejewia balcanica).

I work at the Destin History and Fishing Museum. We are very small. We have a wall with old skin mounts on it. Most can be identified but I have 2 I can't find. All fish were caught in the Gulf off Destin. One is a very small bright yellow grouper with faint spots. The other looks like a mingo snapper, small but, his color is red on top and bottom and a bright yellow middle. If you think you can help that would be great. If a photo will help I can get one to you. Thanks so much for your time. Maggie

In Greece one year, we were swimming in this little cove and we had to quickly get out of the water because my mum and dad had seen something in the water, we went to see what type of fish it was but couldn't identify what it was. It looks like a small, thin and long dolphin, with the fins of a marlin but tiny, and the tail of a shark but smaller. It was a bout eight foot in long. It was metallic blue on the top and silver underneath. If anyone could tell me what this fish is, I'd be very grateful.

Absolutely fascinating, not my first choice for searching data for my home aquarium. But certainly my only choice as an arbitrator. As a learning tool Fish Base is certainly way ahead of its time, well done folks, you all deserve an individual thank you, but collectively is all thats available, so many thanks.

Anyone know what kind of fish this is?
Posted on: 1/4/2008 10:38:00

Presumably originated from someone's aquarium (I know, it doesn't look like your typical aquarium fish), found dead at a freshwater pond also inhabited by trout, catfish, and other coolwater species. No idea where it came from or how long it had been there. Description: ~20 inches long small scales paired fins (though not intact on specimen) adipose fin rounded or squared caudal fin sharp teeth Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

fish name wanted
Posted on: 1/4/2008 10:11:00

While snorkeling off the coast in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, we came upon a brown and tan fish which at first glance thought might be a type of lion fish, but was spotted instead of striped and didn't have enough barbs. After watching it for awhile and following it around, it opened up "wings" on both sides of it's body that on the edges appeared to be a luminisce blue stripe. Any ideas? Unfortunately I had run out of film on my underwater camera by the time we came upon this fish :o(

Hi Really good site. I´m working on a degree thesis about fish herbivores, in Thalassodendron ciliatum dominated seagrass meadows, on the coast of Zanzibar. Wonder if someone knows if there has been research about the breeding habit of Leptoscarus vaigiensis and Siganus sutor. I’m interested in finding out at what age or preferably total length these species become sexually mature and starting to reproduce? If someone knows if there are papers or other documents in this subject I’m very grateful. Lilitha

I have been unsuccessful in attempts in trying to find measurements on fish cerebella. If you know of a paper, book, or just someone I could try contacting in order to get some data please let me know. If anyone could help I would be truly grateful. Thank you for reading. -Brandon

new tank
Posted on: 25/2/2008 22:01:00

i just got a new tank, i actually just added my fish today. i got a pair of tank bred clownfish and a cleaner shrimp. i have a small tank so i do not have many decorations, i have a small treasure chest that opens and closes and has air bubbles, a small castle with holes, and a medium rock thing with different openings. i guess my clownfish have decided that the rock is their territory, for the most part they stay by it and explore the rest of the cage ever so often. my shrimp stays in the corner cleaning most of the time. i'm just wondering is this normal behavior and any advice on keeping up with my fish and tank since i'm completley new at this!

Aegean Sea Mystery Fish
Posted on: 24/2/2008 08:35:00

This fish washed up on the shore dying when I was in Greece summer 2006. It was the shore of the Gulf of Evvia, not the actual Aegean, but it was near where the Aegean meets with the gulf. The Greeks had no idea what it was but suggested it was a deep water fish that swam into the sea and became disoriented (who knows). It was about 6'2-3" in length and it's body was very flat, almost eel-like. It was silver and its top fins were translucent and reddish. It didn't have fins along the bottom of its body, and no flipper fins either. It had a cylindrical mouth and very large eyes (maybe tennis ball size in diameter). Has anyone ever seen a fish like this? I'm trying to attach pictures, but I don't know if it is working.

Puffy needs help...
Posted on: 12/1/2008 19:12:00

Ok, I havw a spotted green puffer fish. I bought it from Walmart of all places about 6 months ago. I knew nothing about the fish (and neither did the people selling it to me). I have always been a goldfish keeper because they are easy. I only have the one, he is in a 10 gallon tank. I keep the water brackish and heated to about 76-78 degrees. It was doing very well for months then it's tail fins started to dissapear and he became coated by what looked like fuzzy crystal-y stuff. So I did a partial water change and added some more salt. And I have been treating the tank with an antibacterial medication for about 5 days. The white fuzzy stuff is gone now but he is still just laying on the bottom of the tank and doesn't even move when I come to the glass (he used to) I know that he is alive but he is just not himself. And I don't see regrowth on his tail. Will it grow back? What else can I do? I never thought I would get attatched to a fish but I am- and I really love him. I can't lose him. Someone help me please!

Walking fish
Posted on: 4/1/2008 22:51:00

During the summer of 2002, I was walking on New Smyrna Beach after a storm and I noticed something running in front of me. As I moved closer the creature turned as if to look up at me. I bent down to get a little closer look and to my surprise it was a fish. I acted as if I was going to pick it up...which I wouldn't have done because it was wiggled its way into the sand. At the time I noticed the fish I was probably 20 feet from the shoreline so I wasn't really expecting a fish. The fish had large lips (like a Stonefish) and if I remember correctly seemed to have tentacles (tentacles is not the correct word, but that's the only word I can think of) along its sides and top. It's color was maybe a redish-orange or something like that and it was at least a foot long. Does anyone know what type of fish runs on a beach and is able to dig fairly deep in the sand at a high rate of speed? I have tried quite often to find out what type of fish this might be...I wish I had my camera at the time. Can anyone help. Thanks.
