What Kind Of Fish Are These?

I would love to know what kind of fish these are. :huh:

I have had them for a little over 2 years. There were a gift, in one of those little "aqua babies" cubes. The fish were tiny, there was an african frog and a snail.

The frog died right away and was eaten by the fish. The snail died and the fish grew. I have them in a little 3 gallon tank with filter and airstone.

I thought they were guppies but I don't really think so. Also when I bought food for them I didn't read it carefully and it is "color enhancing" food, that is why they have so much red.

:hi

Hey, thanks!

They are lively little guys. I named them Ink and Stink (this was right after I had surgery 2 years ago (June of 01) and I was loopy from the morphine and vicodin).

:hi

Hi there,

I was just looking at the picture of your lovely fish and they look really like something in one of my books, same shame, size and markings but different colouring. See http://www.itrademarket.com/hergunfish/22394 - what do you think. These are Rasbora Heteromorpha, known as Harliquins.

:hi Hi Nancy, I used to keep Rasbora Heteromorpha and I don't think thats them, they don't have the black marking like an hour glass. It is a tetra though, very close to what koko said. Maybe its them but I'll work on it. :lol

Hi Kip,

I was surprised to see another post on this topic! I will look up the blood fin tetras.

Do you know if it is possible to mix varieties of tetras? I am going to be setting up a larger tank for my goldies and would like to put the tetras in the 20 gallon and of course would like more fish.

:lol

Those are most definitely columbian tetras. You know, I had no idea they ever put tetras in teh Aquababies. Poor things. You can certainly mix types of tetras; you just want to make sure you have a minimum of 3 of each kind of tetra. Actually at least 6 is the best for them. Theyre schooling fish, so the more they have around them, the more comfortable they are. You could have just about any kind of tetras in there that you want, you just want to keep them similar in size. The harlequin rasboras mentioned earlier are awesome little fish, and you could eventually get a nice school of those to go in there too. My friend bought some and has been really happy with them. :)
