Welcome to our forum!
I can't tell what it is, either - but I'm curious. Hopefully someone around here will recognize it - any chance you could get a clearer shot of him?

heehee, I know the feeling! Fish photography is tricky, at best.
hopefully someone familiar with the species will be able to solve your mystery.

It looks very much like a bass, but without a better picture can't say with certainty.
Its super hard to get good fish photos, but if you can give another try...?

My first thought was bass too. If it is how on earth did it get into a pet store? :o

It definitely doesn't look like a domestic breed of fish. Wonder where it came from o.O

Looks like it came from my supermarket

Save the feeder fish! He may be rare or on the verge of extinction.

I've heard of contaminants (other fish) getting into fish farms (especially feeders) on occasion, and since feeders aren't really monitored carefully, just mass produced, I doubt they would pick out a fish that's different from the rest.

Sometimes the contaminants can be quite desirable. Might just be me but I would raise the fish up and see what you get.

It looks like a bass to me. I have caught bass plenty of times while fishing and it looks like a bass to me but remember I am not an expert by no means.
