I believe I got two Elassoma Zonatum with my Ofekenokee order. Can you look at this video and ID this unknown fish?


The video starts on a Ofekenokee young, then moves to what I believe is the Zonatum, while the adult Ofekenokee comes out front. 


Bump the quality to 1080p.

I agree.  Longer body, prominent stripe through & behind eye, and prominent body bars = zonatum.

Yep, definitely zonatum, not that Gerald needed the confirmation.

Thanks. I've noticed they won't eat the live baby brine shrimp. They take it but spit it out. I also noticed one pushing the adult male Ofekenokee around.
