What kind of fish are these? There are three there with red heads.
Is it a freshwater or saltwater fish?:;nin2
freshwater. Looks like a cypranid to me.
Look like odessa barbs
You know more about fish ID than me, but isn't that in the Carp family. It would have to be some sort of cultivated cipranid?:;b
Wha was he company on the commercial, ill find he commercial and hen we will have a clear view, imo i dont think their odessa unless thats a new color?
This also includes barbs, danio's, white cloud minnows, and the like Thats not a very good picture
Yes, carps are in the cypranid order, as are barbs, rasboras, loaches, minnows, danios and some sharks. This fish only has a red head, so I don't think it's an odessa. I've seen a lot of fish and this is not one I've ever seen. It was swimming with gold barbs in the commercial.
What was the company that this was for?
Was it a Ruby barb? They swim with gold barbs and have black bodies with varying degree of red on their heads. Though that body shape suggests something in the Cyprinus area.
It was for the not so local fish store. Black ruby barbs have the shape of tiger barbs, and that is more torpedo shaped. But it's the right color scheme.
Mayhaps a hybrid? Not uncommon in the barb family as we know
I think its too long, too, to be a Black Ruby... Maybe its confused
At first I thought they were asian rummy nose rasboras, but I think the fish in question are too big. Maybe not
Hm, its hard to say... http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/fish-pictures/asian-rummynose-1312391144-800.jpg
It's hard to tell since the picture is a bit blurry. Definitely a cyprinid. Judging by the body shape it is more barb-like than rasborin. Did you look on seriouslyfish? I'm thinking a Black Ruby Barb: http://www.seriouslyfish.com/profile.php?genus=Puntius&species=nigrofasciatus&id=156
Perhaps their breeding colors are really dark? But there's no red on the tails. Aside from that though, they look like a good possibility. Many rasboras have torpedo shaped bodies.
Its really got that carp like hunch going on. With the round back but elongated flatter head.
Good morning, :animal0068:I have moved your thread from General Discussion to Fish ID Help section of the forum. Thanks! Ken
