Hello, I am new to the forum. I am having issues with new fish that I got today. I don't think these are Gold Barbs. They look nothing like the "Banana Barb/Gold Barb) the guy sold me a few weeks ago. I am going to try to post a pic. of both of the alleged "Gold Barbs" and hopefully you guys can help.
The fish in the front is a Cherry Barb and the 2 and 1/2 are the "Banana Barbs"
This is a new fish. Sorry the pic.s are not good I only have my phone to work with.

Black neon, final answer

Thank You so much. Just to clarify the second pic is the Neon?

Edited* I just googled them and that is exactly the fish they gave me. Wow I can't believe I didn't notice sooner. Thank You for your quick response.

Yeah, that second pic with the single fish definitely looks like a black neon to me as well.

I looked them up online and that is what I have. My only question I have now is I just added five fish today. I want to watch my water levels and not add too many fish at one time. So will my three Gold Barbs (that are currently hanging out with my Cherry Barbs) and Two Black Neon Tetras be alright in small numbers for a couple of weeks while I let my aquarium adjust or should I return/trade the two neon tetras and get the Gold Barbs to complete their numbers. I was stupid the first time I set up an aquarium and I finally feel like I have the hang of it and set up this fifty five and made a stupid mistake. I can't believe I didn't notice this until I was home and had them in the tank.

FYI- I asked for three cherry and two gold barbs today and the associate sent them instead.
