Well, that definitely is the fish. Was really looking forward to watching him grow up with all his buddies. I'm sure his tankmates will miss staring at him trying to figure out what to do:)

On another note, as you read above, I made a mistake somehow keying in the type of fish in my tank. Will having Roseline Sharks in place of Tiger Barbs impact the overall stocking density of my tank. Really trying to keep what I have here.

Just a little note on my tank:
The rummies love to school around with the roselines. The neons with the rummies, mostly. The cories are quite the pair and have tried to breed with each other. The cherry barbs really just go anywhere. The salmon red and the praecox display awesome colors (I dub war paint) when the female praecox spawns. I see the candystripe once a month when he gets bored of being under log. The angels are freakin' pigs... and growing fast. The gouramis are the cats of the aquarium. They hang out most of the time and then all of a sudden decide their bored and wander through every opening in the tank.

Since adding the new rainbows, the Boesemans have begun chasing around some of the Roselines. It's like watching a dog chase a horse. Any thoughts? Or just another weird pairing in the tank.

The Roseline is probably what we term Denisons Barb in our profiles, Puintius denisonii. As it notes, this fish attains 6 inches, should have a group of 8, and be in a 4-foot or larger tank. It may (when mature) eat smaller fish (neons, rummys, cherry barbs). It also needs cooler temps and some water flow, again opposite to some of the other fish.
