Does anyone know what my fish is?

Postby Portland Bill » Fri Oct 12, 2007 9:48 pm

I was sold this fish as a Danio. I've not been convinced since I got it home that it's a Danio, and it has been suggested from it's photo that it isn't a Danio.

Could anyone tell me what it actually is?

I know the photo's not great but you can make out it's markings.

Cheers

OK i've given up. I've searched most places containing pics of rasboras and tetras.

I still think it's a rasbora or perhaps a tetra though.

Well found David! Thank you!

I was under the impression the mussels were easy enough to leave in the bottom of the tank.

They're both alive and kicking, they're just pains in the arse coz they keep wedging themselves under my rocks and filter and I have to keep turning them round.
