Imposter!? #1
About three days ago I bought 4 WCMM, or so I thought...

One of them is about the same size as the others but on closer inspection has different colours and patterns on him in comparison to the others.
Here's a pic of him:

Is he a WCMM and just a different colour or something else altogether?
What do you call a fish with no eyes?

Well he does look like a WCMM to me but I've never seen one that colour. I've never kept them before though.

Hi,
This looks very much like a young Giant danio to me (Devario malabaricus), though there are several danio species which look very similar. Check out

If I'm right, it'll get a lot bigger than your Whiteclouds - good luck!

Re: Imposter!? #5
Thanks you guys, perfect match
Bit concerned though, I hope he doesn't grow too big...

4-6 inches so a fair size, might be an idea to take him back now if you havent got the room ..
