Mystery fish #1
I'm pretty new to fish keeping and when stocking my tank the first fish I got were one I want to know if now. He was sold to me as a speckled barb but upon googling a picture I quickly found out he is definitely not a barb. He has similar tail markings as a rainbow but the body shape is different (please see picture) I've also had someone suggest he's a Danio but I'm pretty sure he is not. He swims a lot and is very sociable with my other fish (rams and mollies), he also eats a hell of a lot.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Re: Mystery fish #2
Looks like a pearl danio (Brachydanio albolineata)
