I think I just saw them at the fish store the other day. 8 line barb I think they called it.

Dang i have never seen those before, and I have seen a lot of fish lol. They sort of look like barred barbs. But I have no idea.

I was hoping for a species name but nothing comes up under that...
They said they are from Singapore but I'm not sure if that meant wild caught there or bred. :/ darn buggers..

Perhaps it's a barb cousin - a rasbora.

Im doubting bred. I have never seen ones that have lines like that, i have seen ones with blue than black lines, also another one but to thick lines, also another one that but they are to skinny. Idk this is hard!
