    Hello! Could someone help me ID the paler fish in this video? It was taken at my LFS but the only fish labelled in the tank were the Tiger Barbs and Green Tiger Barbs. The lighting's not so great, but the fish are actually a very light rosy gold color. The only noticeable feature is a very fine pink line along the very top of the dorsal fin. Beautiful fish. Thanks for the ID help!

    Those look like albino tiger barbs to me

    You're right!!! Thank you! It makes so much more sense now why they didn't seem to be labelled.

    Is it safe to assume Tiger Barbs are not particularly compatible with Gouramis (particularly Honey Gouramis)?

    Yes, it is. Honey gouramis like very quiet waters, and tiger barb types like moving water with a good flow. They also grow larger than a honey, and will push the gourami around. Sometimes they may even nip at the feelers on the gourami.

    Delicate and tiger barb are not phrases that go together.

    Thanks for confirming! I will stick with Rummynose Tetras like I was planning.
