What kind of fish?
 
1 Attachment(s)
I saw a fish in pet smart a couple months ago and ever since I saw it I feel like I have to have one. Unfortunately I don't remember what the thing was called. I don't remember much about it but it was mostly if not all black and white, and around its eye it had this pattern, or something like it as I tried to draw below. I know it's not much to go off of but would anyone know what I saw? I haven't seen one since, of course it's not at the store anymore, and I have already tried searching the net a bit. I can't find anything.....

I know it's not a lion fish, I am going to search the other list and see if I come across it. I don't remember it having a weird body or anything, just a normal fish with an awesome design.

Do you remember if it was freshwater or saltwater? Most of the "awesomely designed" fish are saltwater(in my opinion), but dividing between the two would start to narrow down the search.

I'm guessing salt water..? Since we're in the saltwater section. :)

Oh haha, my bad..i didnt even notice the category...I saw this post in the "new posts" section, so they're all mixed togther. Happy hunting!

It was saltwater, I do know that.

The tree fish could be it but I am leaning towards no. Kind of has the eye thing going on. I seem to think they were harder lines with strong contrast vs the blurred edges of the fish pictured.

Whatever it is I will see one again someday lol. If I do I might just have to build a tank around it.

I know when I saw it the first thing that came to mind was face paint on a jester or something.

What about that second fish? I edited my post and added it.. if that's not it, it's def got a cool looking thing going on around it's eye! :P


Yeah, it was in my "new posts" section too. I know very, very little about salt water - but I like searching for things lol
