    I have a 40g that I am just starting up and has a bit of bacteria from another tank. Today I went and got one Odessa Barb... I decided those are the fish I want. So beautiful!

    Will he okay for a few weeks while I mature the filter? Should I go back tomorow and get another? This is almost certainly a male so I'd try to get a female.

    Are you doing a fish in cycle? If so you should complete the school gradually, maybe add 1 every week or add 2 every week

    No I'm sorry.. to be honest the moment he was netted his color washed out. I will be sure to take pictures once he colors back up though. I fell instantly in love when seeing them and can't wait to have a small school as the centerpiece of my tank.
