I thought that too.. but the all blue scales, and red fins kind of threw me off of that. the body shape, esp the nose is very similar to the rainbowfish.

NOOO!!! For the longest time I still had the old facebook but when I clicked that image link it sent me to the new one. I hate facebook.

But I agree with everyone else. It looks like a rainbowfish.

A neon rainbowfish to be exact.

And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores, I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core.

Yep I'd agree that it's a neon rainbowfish.
