Default ID of small-ish Korean Stream Fish?

Long long ago, I saw a 'fluffy' finned fish in a shallow stream at a Korean
tourist village. I don't know if the fish was 'installed' in the stream, but
to some degree, the stream was artificial. I think there were metallic
colors on the fins, else the fish wouldn't have visually struck me. It was
about 4 or 5" long.

Anyone have guesses or clues to its species?

Fluffy is kind of vague, could you be more descriptive on the shape? Like,
was it as wide or a narrow body? Did it have a dorsal fin? Was the tail
fin split, like a goldfish? Did it have whisker's like a catfish?

There are 212 native species to Korea. In addition, the fish you saw could
easily have been imported.

Can tank size limit fish size? (Or why are my friends fish so small?) asginpg General 12 December 2nd 03 10:45 PM
