    I'd like to know what these guys are.
    And also these guys. There a half the size of the 1st guys if that.

    Sorry about bad picture.

    No idea on there tank size know they don't have the right tank or type/number of fish there's only 4 or them. 2 of the tinfoil. 1 clown loach. Its a docs office so all I can really say is its most like 100g give or take and looks clean.

    I know that at one time but just could not come up with it.

    Not sure if drape fin barbs
    Is right. There a lot smaller then the tinfoil but the tinfoil are about the size of my head. The 2nd guys are still about as long as my hand so 5inchs at the smallest I'd say.

    If they're that big, then yeah, not the drape fin. Looks like some kind of barb to me though.

    I would say the first is Tin Foil Barb, but I have no clue about the second fish. hampalong, or chromedome52, I'm pretty sure will know.

    Thank you everyone and

    Thank you slayer
    I think your right. They do have a very light shadow of red on there fins with the black like pictures on google just not as dark as most.

    I think they're kind of scared tho in a busier office yet seem to swim as fast as they can away from anyone by the tank.

    Like most public tanks I've seen there almost always set up with the wrong fish and numbers. At least the tank looks like its deep enough for them to turn and cant really think of how long it was I'd just be randomly guessing.

    So far I've only seen 1 public tank that's I'd call really nice and way under stocked and it was a salt water tank as long as some living rooms and almost floor to ceiling again not sure on width but was very nice. It only had a few fish that were only 4inch max.

    slayer5590 has it correct, Tinfoil and Dawkinsia filamentosa.
