Dang i have never seen those before, and I have seen a lot of fish lol. They sort of look like barred barbs. But I have no idea.

I was hoping for a species name but nothing comes up under that...
They said they are from Singapore but I'm not sure if that meant wild caught there or bred. :/ darn buggers..
