So I just bought two freshwater tropical fish from a pet store and I don't know what kind of fish they are. I have been doing some research and fear they might be dyed=/. They are mostly clear and at the top they are colored. I remember one type of fish next to it at the same store was called a jelly bean parrot which looked very similar to my fish. Are mine some type of parrot fish?

Also, the blue one won't eat! HELP!




(I don't know how to upload pictures on here so let me know if this worked!)

Thanks guys!

The leucistic form of black widows. Can't say it's albino as albinos should have red eyes. But these are dyed forms.:sad:

A weekly water change will do it. Weekly is very important to ensure the fish are in consistently clean water conditions. Depends as well on how your ammonia and nitrite are.
