Title: Help ID fish
Post by: Ruthy on January 03, 2018, 07:16:32 AM
Fostering some fish for a while, not sure how long. 10 or 12 gallon tank (long bowfront).
Inhabitants:
3 neon tetra
1 betta
4 unknown, think some sort of barb.

Sorry about the bad picture, it's the best I can get with the light available

Looks like it could be the Gold Barb

Ah yes they do look pretty similar to those with the black line and the spot by the tail. Thank you!
I'm not sure how long will have these fish for, there are a lot of MTS though (more MTS than gravel) so I may pop a couple of assassins in there. May put a val or two in it. Would love to up the neon numbers but not sure if I can as I don't own them
