Thread: Fish ID help

  1. #1

    Question Fish ID help


    0 Not allowed!
    I inherited the fish from a friend of my wifes. I have two 1" long yellow fish with red fins. They are shaped much like a neon tetra, just a little larger. I have looked at lots of pics and have not found them. Any guesses?

    Could you post a pic or two.

    That could go a long way to get better help trying to ID your fish
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Agreed, pictures would really help.
    All I can think of now that might match is a golden White Cloud Mountain minnow.

    A picture would be a big help as stated, but it sounds like maybe a Gold Pristella.

    Glad you got your fish Id'd, Jeff, now you need about 8 more to make them feel comfortable.

    I will work on that. I haven't seen any at any of the fish stores here in Phoenix, but I will ask.
