A young barb, likely a Rainbow Shark (Epalzeorhynchos erythrurus) swims in his new fish tank. The orange discoloration on this fish's head is of concern, but he may outgrow it with proper care and diet.

"Just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU !!! Your site is the most informative and objective one I've found. This is our first large(ish) tank and by following your advice we have just this evening introduced our first fish. There is so much info out there, well meaning I imagine, but conflicting and confusing to the beginner. By reading and referring to your advice and wisdom, it has made this new adventure a delight! Looking forward to many years of tropical fish enjoyment."
