The thicker stripes point to a Zebra fish for me.

The Ludericks I've seen have thinner stripes.

Do not kill and keep something that you cannot identify. Quite simply, you could be breaking the law or worse still, if it's poisonous, you could put yourself and others in serious jeopardy. (puffer fish - toxic, gurnard perch - spikes, blue groper - protected species, grey nurse shark - protected species silver perch - protected species in rivers of victoria).

Just my 2cents worth for today.


This x1,000,000. It's not needed at all in this day and age

And it's a zebrafish not a Luderick. Similar fish but different as canned_tuna pointed out

I once had that opinion, but steam it and you'll be licking your fingers all the way to the next session... :thumbsup:
