You are going to either need to get a tank above 200G or give him away to someone else that has these barbs. They need to be in groups, and get 12"+ long.

I don't think it a tinfoil barb. I've seen those fish before, but I can't remember the name. They do reach similar sizes as a tinfoil though.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

What color is the top fin ?
The top fin looks taller than my tinfoil barbs and red in color in the picture.
Are the fins striped or do they just appear that way in the picture?

if the top fin is red, it may be a red tinfoil barb that max out at 8in. Tinfoil barbs lack the red color in the dorsal fin and max out at 14 in.

Good luck with it!
