Thanks all.

Johnny, they are a Denison Barb aka Redline Barb aka Redline Shark.

They grow to 5-6" and really colour up as they get older nicely. I have seen a difference in the amount of colour in mine in the month since I got them already. Peaceful but active fish that is constantly on the move.

i thoughts thats what they were...I've always been curious about them. How many do you have in your 90G? my LFS store carries them, but I've always been leery because they label them as sharks

No need to be leery! I keep a school of Denisons in my tank and they are the most peaceful fish in the tank. They are incredibly active but totally mellow in personality. I had a school of nine but I'm now down to seven. They are big time jumpers and that's how I lost two of them. Your tank needs to be covered 100% or it seems they will find a way out! Somehow my two managed to jump ship out of a two by six slot in the top of tank (now covered up).

I can't recall what other fish you have in your tank but a school of at least five Denisons and 2 to 3 rams would be great. A 55gl affords four feet length in swimming room, right? Heavily planted will give the Bolivians enough room to stake out their own territories. I keep both Denisons and Bolivians together and I love them!
