Help! What kind of fish is this?
Well I killed a fish and need to find a replacement A.S.A.P.

This fish isn't mine so I don't know what kind it is.

It was in a small beta tank, and its long and white. I would say about 3" long.

Here is a picture.

Pretty nasty picture, but I'd venture to say that it is an bichir.

Is this a tank you're looking after for a friend? Getting a replacement for this fish is not a good idea, and will only lead to more problems.

If indeed it is a bichir it needs to be housed in a large tank and cannot be kept in a small tank along with a beta.

Consider this as a learning experience for both of you. You get to learn to say "Your fish went belly up" and he/she can come on here and learn the needs and proper care for fish such as this.

The good thing is *you* by yourself didn't kill that fish. It wasn't in a proper environment and its death was really only a matter of time. Getting another fish would just be giving it a death sentence.
