Finally the 55 gallon

    Hey all!

    So that obsession I have with a discuss tank led me to bid on a 55 on eBay, which I won this weekend. It was great, the guy threw in the stand, the heater the filters, food, treatments, plus the tank itself for $102.

    So, thanks Chelle, for the eBay advice. But here's the problem. He had a tankful of community fish. I transported them to my house in the back of a pickup truck and EVERY ONE of them survived. Mollies, swordtails, goramis, platies, cory cats, a MASSIVE pleco... but there are several fish I can't identify. Maybe someone here will know.

    1) a school of orange ones, about 2" long, with big black dots near the tail, black fins. The males have elongated dorsals. Something about them reminds me of barbs, but they aren't any barbs I've ever seen.
    2) a pair of yellow, 2" fish that don't look entirely differnt from the last ones. They also have black dots near the tail. Greenish tint around the eyes and a big red "blush" mark on the cheeks.
    3) large (3-5") black&white fish with huge, "fancy" fins and tails. White/grey bodies wirth black stripes running down the face and torso.

    Any ideas? This obviously changed my discus/ghost knife/angel fish plans, but that's life. How could I break up such a beautiful community??
