Help Me Name My Fish?
Okay I know I might sound so stupid, but I started keeping fish for fun and now I'm addicted... So I start buying any fish I like and not really know what they are :oops:. I have googled and know what I have most, but I didn't find what are these:

The pink with white stripes

Is this molly too or not molly?

Hey KuNika! Welcome to TFK!!!

I could be wrong (not the best with IDing things!), but it looks to me like you maybe have a Glofish?

Danio rerio, commonly called the Zebra Danio is where this fish got its roots, Glo Fish have an interesting story on how DNA can be manipulated by humans, but I believe that their care is still the same as the fish they were created from. (Someone correct me if I'm wrong!)

I've never kept Danio but from what I've seen around they're really active fish, like a bit of extra swimming room, and should be kept in a group. People usually recommend that they be kept in cooler temperatures. . . I don't want to lead you wrong, so here is a link to the Danio rerio profile. Give it a read through, I'm sure it will answer a few questions for you!

Hope that helps?!

Thanks Chesh it really helps.... I think they're pink zebra Danios...:thumbsup:

After reading some about pink Danio I just find out they're banned in some country. My fish not as bright as most pink Glofish though...

I don't even think that the seller knows that this fish special or something, because I found most online store sell it for $6-$9 each and I bought them only $0,5 for 5 fish :welldone:

They're pretty active, when they're in smaller tanks they seems pretty aggresive and 2 of them died with no fin (I think it the ni fins habbit). But in bigger tank they're quiet calm and didn't even eat any fry left in the community tank...

Most said they're infertile but I think one of mine a little fat (hope she's pregnant, not sick :tongue:)

Glad I could help get you pointed in the right direction!
Danio are cool fish - I hope they do well for you!
