I have this fish and no one can tell me what it is. The place I got it from couldn't even tell me what it is. It was the only one like it. I have never seen another fish like it. Here are some pictures. If you can tell me what it is, please do. Thanks.

I think FishinPole is right, looks like one of the lyretails, Aphyosemion species. Maybe a killifish specialist on here will know.

male Pseudomugil signifer. It a type of blue-eye rainbow, often called a signifer rainbow. That one is a Northern variety. Singifers can vary a lot in what they look like, you get many different variations of the same fish.

Here is a info link

I just went to my LFS and saw a fish that looked just like the one in the picture. And when I looked at the label, it said Signifer Rainbowfish.

Thanks. That site is really good for info on all rainbows. My avatar is a Pseudomugil gertrudae, so a very close cousin to the signifer. I've kept two strains of signifer, both a northern strain like the fish above and a southern brackish strain. They are nice fish and very fun to watch displaying. I eventually got rid of mine because they were displaying to my male gertrudae's. Signifers were more nippy in there displays, so they kept shredding the gertrudaes fins. But overall I love all the Pseudomugil species.

Awesome. Thanks a bunch. So I guess the general concensus is that it is a Signifer Rainbow.
