Yes, the markings are what caught my attention too, but I just figured maybe the females are marked differently. My apologies to Quantum! I looked online and it DOES look like a Cherry barb to me. And I remember when I got this fish that the tank was labeled White Cloud Mountain Minnows, but some of them were bright red! I couldn't figure out why. So it makes sense--they were put into the wrong tank! Good ole' Petsmart. I don't buy from them anymore. Just read about the Cherry barb, and thank goodness they aren't nippy like most other barbs. So I really lucked out! I won't have to take her back, and I will go out this week and get her a male. Poor thing, she's been sort of hanging out with the minnows, but mostly by herself. She's so mellow and kick back, and I thought all barbs were hyper and nasty! So I'm actually a little pleased. Thank you for the help, both of you!
