it looks like some kind of barb, if it is, it needs to be in a group of about 8

Yup - a barb. Not sure exactly which type though. It's really pretty.

As stated, they should be kept in groups of 8 or more. I see a big change in mine when the numbers get low.

if you figure out which kind it is, let us know. I'd love to add some to my tank
also i just noticed your tank is a 10g, which would be far too small for a school of barbs. i would suggest you take it back to the store. its a shame though

i agree, albino tiger barb. you should take it back to the store it will nip your other fish's fins if it doesnt get a school and you won't be able to fit them in a 10g
