Yeah, I sort of thought it looked like a little sparkling gourami when I got a closer look at it. I'll let it keep growing and find out. I'm at a loss on what to feed the little guy at this point. ...

I was able to get a couple of quick pics of the mystery fish this morning. Took us an awfully long time to spot him! I couldn't get a great zoom so ID will probably be tough. I'll try and get a...
