Definitely not a fish. 

Not sure what it is.  :headscratch:

Could be shell material. Or Mineral staining.

Would need to see more pictures, maybe from farther away.

My impression is that it is a shard of limonite in a sandstone matrix.

Looks like plant material, but do you have a closer look at the circles? they could be spirobis worms.

 

Spirorbis sp. fossil

'Fraid not. 

Spirorbis now begins it's existence in the Cretaceous. 

Earlier forms are now classified as microconchids from the class Tentaculita.

Thanks for the closer view.  I just see a bark pattern.
