Question Need help with identification

We have three of the pictured fish in our aquarium and can't remember what they are. Can anyone help?
They are the color of brand new pennies and have a dark spot near the tail on each side.

You did it! You are absolutely right. As soon as I pulled up a pic of a rosy barb, I knew you were right! Thank you so much!

I have them too! Also called the Neon Rosy Barb and apparently they should be kept in groups of 5 or more. I recently had 2, one passed and the other was frantic in the tank for a week. I was advised of the need for 5, so I picked up 4 similar in size and it is really amazing to see them zippiing around my tank together, playing chase and follow the leader all 5 in row across the tank. Or again as a group they also love to swirl around in the output current of the filter. Enjoy!!

Uh-Oh....5?

We only have three right now. Don't know if I can talk my hubbie into two more. The three seem pretty happy. I think we've pretty much maxed our tank out with all the barbs, catfish and tetras. It's only 30 gallons. It's a pretty lively tank!
