What about this lil fishy. . . .
Not really fair... Supposed to be doing aquarium fish I thought.
That's a Rainbow Darter (Etheostoma caeruleum)

Since you picked a hard one, it's my turn. (I'll edit the post and add one)



This one's got a lot of common names, so I prefer scientific name. :P (I hope I don't take the fun out of this game)

It is a rainbow darter correct. I have 5 of these in my aquarium. What do you mean when you say they are not really aquarium fish ? Should they be living in a bucket LOL ?

I think he means fish out of the water? the colors do not show as well out of the water so it is harder to identify?

nah, I really was referring to them as a cold-water fish... I guess they're like white clouds... They're pretty rare in aquariums though. You got them to breed yet?

I'll guess the Potamotrygon Leopoldi Stingray also known as Black Devil/polka dot stingray. Took a lot of research to find that one :) And I enjoy a challenge!

Freshwater, grow to about 15 inches, they are mainly bottom dwellers but will surface for food. They enjoy a mildly acidic environment from 6-6.8 pH, need to be kept at 68 to 77 degrees, and a 6-10d hardness. Keep a ratio of one male to every 2 females when stocking, they live about 5 to 15 years, be sure not to keep in a tank with smaller fish because it can get too excited during feeding time and try to eat them, and be sure not to keep it in a tank of fin nippers that will damage its delicate disk. Minimal tank requirement is 125 gallons, and it enjoys shrimp, earthworms, mealworms, silversides and crustaceans.
