    Backstory: made a $100 offer on a 100gal. Offer got accepted. I was expecting only glass but it came with everything including fish... wasnt ready for fish and didn't plan on being ready for quite a while.(remodeling a house).
    Questions: what kind of tetras are these 2? And what is going on with the markings on the sailfin pleco? Is he ill?
    Yes I know I have some(obvious) compatibility issues been doing this for a long time, but it is what it is for now.

    What a deal!

    I’m not sure what the decoloring is about on the pleco.
    I see a convict cichlid, the black striped fish.
    The pink and yellow are glofish skirt tetras. I can’t really tell what the blue one is, maybe an electic blue acara?
  3. MrBryan723Well Known MemberMember

    Yes on the convict and blue acars. Also have an African leaf fish in there with 2 dino cats. The other 2 are 1 orange and 1 yellow, and definitely not glofish or skirt tetras. They both have a black dot near their tail.

    You have gold barbs, the red looks to be a red velvet swordtail.
    Plecos display colors to match the substrate as best they can (which is why most people will suggest black substrate as their colors will be the stronger over it in an effort to blend in).

    I'm pretty sure they're a tetra or possibly a barb.
  8. bryangarWell Known MemberMember

    There you go.
  9. MrBryan723Well Known MemberMember

    They're the same species. Gold barb looks right. Ty

    They are not Gold Barbs, they are Gold strain aka Glass Rosy Barbs. The red one is the male. The translucence of the red is why they are called "Glass".

    The Pleco is just a little stressed. The blotchy pattern is a stress pattern.
