    I got some fish for free along with a tank and supplies earlier, but I can't figure out what kind of fish they are. Help?
    I know the one on the right is a zebra danio, i'm asking about the other two.
    Also, yes, they are in a bowl right now, but will be moved to a larger tank in a few minutes. Thanks in advance for your help!

    I think they may be head and tail light tetras but not sure

    Looks like some sort of tetra not sure what kind tho.

  4. DoubleDutchFishlore LegendMember

    Think they are Gold Tetras
  5. LittleBlueBettaValued MemberMember

    yes, the only thing i found that kind of resembled them looked like head and tail light tetras.

    I'm probably wrong, but glass fish maybe?
  7. pacmanfrog101Valued MemberMember

    Glass fish are more Arrowhead shaped I think, but those crossed my mind too

    to me it seems like the two on the left were injected with coloring and after a while they lose them all but they are Tetras , the one of the right seems to be zebra Danio can you get a closer pic to that one?

    Some kind of Hemigrammus ocellifer maybe?
  10. LittleBlueBettaValued MemberMember

    yes the one on the right is a zebra danio. It's the other two that i don't know.
  11. DoubleDutchFishlore LegendMember

    No they look wasted cause of stress.
  12. LittleBlueBettaValued MemberMember

    that's the scientific name for Head and Tail Light Tetras, so i guess that's what they are.

    I guess it might just be my eyes then , I seem to see some pink and blue on them but in smudge spots/lines like the coloring has slowly disappear.

    The two on the left appear to be white skirt tetras to me.

    They are tetras, but a positive ID may have to wait until they settle into a tank and show their true colors. As they look in that photo, there are about 200 species that they could be. They are definitely not White Skirts, nor Glass Fish, which are Perch, not Characins. Hemigrammus ocellifer, the Head and Tail Light, is a strong possibility, if the spot on the caudal peduncle gets a red spot above it, and the upper part of the eye.

    They don't seem as high shaped as H.Ocellifer CD
