The Nibble Fish is a new fish introduced in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. It can be found during the Summer and Autumn.

Donating to the Museum

As with all fish caught in Animal Crossing series, the nibble fish can be donated to the museum by talking to Blathers.

In New Leaf

In New Leaf, an information board in the aquarium will list information about this fish.

"The official name given to this warm-water-dwelling species of fish is "Garra rufa." They are omnivorous, as they both eat algae and scrape the skin off other fish. All you'd have to do to feed them is stick your hand in the tank; they would live off your dead skin. That's why they're called nibble fish. They exfoliate but don't have any teeth, so it doesn't hurt at all!"
