Need Help with fish ID
WOW.... this fish thing is addicting!!!! So I just bought a 125gal tank and it already had some fish in it. I am trying to ID these little buggers so I can figure out how they will fit into my community. I have taken pictures of them and would appreciate any input you may have.
Picasa Web Albums - - New fish
The tank also had 2 8-10 inch tin foil barbs and what I think are 2 6-8 inch clown loaches.... but I am not sure. These 4 are going to LFS that has an awsome "larger fish" drop off program.

Thanks again !!!

I don't see any clown loaches in your photos. I see a Columbian Tetra (with ragged fins) and two Rainbow fish. I need to go back and look at the pics again to ID what else is there.

The Loaches and Tin foil barbs are still in the 125 awaiting at trip to LFS. I have not picked up the tank yet. The ones in the pictures are in a spare tank at my house waiting either to go back in the 125 or get donated.

Is pretty good sized and I have no idea what he is or how he will get along the the smaller fish I plan on puttin in the tank once it is setup.

Thanks for the help.... I am adding the names in the comments on the pictures.
I have added one more pic.... some kind of catfish???

Looks like a synodontis, I have no idea which species.
I still want to know what type of fish is in Pic #4. Anyone???

#4 is some type of pencilfish i think? - maybe three lined?

the cat is a hoplo i think - maybe black marble hoplo like this:

I think # 4 is a cigar fish.

# 4 is a striped headstander

I went there today and showed them the picture.... they knew right away what it was.... they probably sold it to the guy I am getting the tank from.
