Hello, I've inherited my grandmother's fish tank and I'm trying to figure out what kind of fish this is. It's maybe 7 inches long, and a shimmery gold/peach color with more reddish/orange color on fins. image.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpgThanks for your help! It's living with a silver dollar fish and a couple cat fish now. I believe I remember my grandmother saying that she couldn't add anything else to the tank because this thing would eat it, but I'm not positive.

Agreed, and both it and the dollar should be in a group of their own kind.

I believe it's 55 gallons (48x 18x 21) It's the same tank and everything my grandmother has had for years. We just moved everything to my house. I went to the aquarium store in town and one person said tin foil barb and another said goldfish :-/ I didn't think it was a goldfish but so hard to figure out what it is when browsing through pictures online when there are soooo many types. Thanks!

That's actually a 75g, same dimensions as mine. A 55 is 48x13x21.

Welcome to fishlore!
Is the pleco in the pic a common? Unfortunately it, and the tinfoil barb, will get way too big for this size tank. I would rehome them and then get more silver dolllars, for a total of at least 6 dollars.

It looks like 2 common plecos and another catfish in there too. Do you know what kind of catfish it is?

And that is a very nice looking tin foil barb. How is it doing? Is it skittish at all?
