Tiger Barb Information needed

Hello all that read this topic :D

So I have 3 Tiger Barb in my fish tank with 2 Platy's, they all get on great but why is one of my Tiger Barb's really really long and not looking like the images do on Google? here's a picture below.

Are you asking about the silver and red fish? It might be some kind of tinfoil barb but it's really hard to tell in this picture because it's too blurry.

Can you possibly get a clearer picture and post it?

Welcome to the forum :)

Neither one of those in the picture is a tiger barb. I am not sure what the silver one is but the orange and black one is a Clown Loach.

The body does look wrong for the barb family but there are some that are longer than wider.
It's the silvery color that has me wondering

Taking it back depends on the policy of the store where you purchased it. Personally, if you can keep them about 3-5 clowns are way better than tiger barbs. They have amazing personalities.

Clown loaches are best with about 3-5 minimum. If you're going to keep it I would do your reading on them as they are very sensitive to being alone.
