Help needed new to this-barbs

Carly0501

Yesterday I went to pets at home to buy some new fish my new tank is 12litre and they advised and sold me 2 6week old barbs. It states on my receipt that they are rosy barbs but the fish are silver with a black spot on the end side on the fish. Are these definitely rosy barbs? Also iv been told that barbs need alot bigger tank than 12l so any ideas as to why I was sold them by pets at home. Thanks .

Rosy barbs do have the black spot on the flanks near the tail. Can you take a pic?

Hate to say it but a 12 litre tank isn't suitable for any fish.

They could be rosy barb females or even males that haven’t colored up yet.
And that tank is definitely way too small and as already mentioned, they will do best in a group.
As far as why they were sold to you, well, the sad part is that some stores will tell you anything to get a sale. :(
