Fish ID please!
So... a couple weeks ago I got some roseline sharks from azgardens.com, at first they all looked similar, after about a day, the black stripe on the roselines appeared (i assume they were pale from the travel stress when i got them), except on one of them. I was thinking maybe because they're still young so they don't have their color yet. To this day, this fish still has me baffled on what it is... Today, I just noticed it started chasing the other roselines around. Of course, It's the fish on the right, side profile. I have even notified azgardens about this mishap, but no response. Does anyone know what kind of fish this is? Thank you. IMG_1932a.jpg

It looks like a Rasbora. Possibly a Rasbora Sumatrana.Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~Chuck Clark

I think it's a Rasbora Elegans or the common name"Two Spot" Rasbora.

Thank you very much. After reading your replies and comparing, it is a two spot rasbora. I'm pretty sure it's not a $17.50 fish (the price i paid for the roselines), and i guess i gotta suck it up and take the loss. It is a nice fish though. Very active.
