I went o the local LFS and they had this little guy. I was told he was a leftover feeder fish and he was $0.25. I knew that was false so I brought him home. I'm guessing he's some type of killifish? I've never kept those before so I'm ignorant. Any info would be appreciated.http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161108/b250e4123d8539413a3e28903c7500d9.jpg

Looks like a male feeder guppy to me. I may be mistaken though. I occasionally would find a killi with feeders, it doesn't look like a killifish though.

He has a high fin like killifish do. And he's shaped differently. Maybe I should have taken more pictures. He was aggressive towards some other fish so he's by himself now.

Ok so I looked up feeder guppy and found some that look identical except for the dorsal fin. Maybe he's just a mutant. Oh well.

Maybe someone else may know. That is a long dorsal fin.

Here's some more pics of the mutant dorsal fin. http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161108/35fa95d444ad4f0ef8c70fde426ca5c8.jpghttp://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161108/1a8f15a58f1a1569e607af7970c58091.jpghttp://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161108/4b2a9950f8112c2a58dbd444f33158e9.jpghttp://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161108/054d0efb46656ea9e5d63ae631416431.jpghttp://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161108/171c01cde70bcdc47b6791233bca7854.jpg

Ya that is definitely a feeder guppy. Keep in mind these are bred by the millions. Deformities are very normal.

I'm guessing endler / guppy mix. Result = feeder "guppy".
