As i have posted i have 5 FAB/CUTE Cherry Barbs and have had 5  white cloud minnows for last 5 days. All seems to be great but just that minnows have grown darker over night! noticed yesterday evening. Have done weekly water change today and all seem calm but active. Can they change colour or should i maybe worry? ???

I don't know but you need 6 total cherry barbs and a total of 6 white clouds.

If they are eating good and seem to be in overall good health(no spots or fuzz growing on them) I wouldn't worry over much. Just keep an eye on them and your water test readings to make sure you don't have any spikes in ammonia, Nitrites or Nitrates.
The five of each are fine for now, if you have room, more would be nice later. These are two that do better the more you have.

Thanks for replies. water readings are fine! they are eating and lively, as are cherry barbs. Shop only had 5 minnows left hence just 5 but will add more, they have my phone no and have said they will call asap. They are great guys in the store too! Went for more cb's but one died in tank as i was there so they are holding others for time being to make sure they are ok. Don't want to shop around as this is a small store, all fish owners and they DO care about fish welfare. My little bunch seem very happy together. PS, i am a worrier!! would hate to harm through ignorance!

Do you have our own testing supplies or is the store doing your testing for you? I agree when You find a good store its best to shop there.
