help identify fish #1
I've adopted my brothers fish and I've never had fish before he got them 3 days ago for his room but he couldn't sleep with the filter noise so I said I'd have them because I don't mind it and he can come see them anyway because they're in the next room.. could anyone tell me what kinds they are and is it normal that they're glued to eachother practically and when one swims off the other frantically tries to find them.

the thing is they were sold to my brother as cold water fish which they aren't now I'm worried I'm keeping them wrong.

Re: help identify fish #4
They're OK at about 22C so you may want to add a small heater. What size is your tank?
