Rainbow Shark

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.

"I wish I had read your information about painted glass fish before I went shopping for fish at Petsmart in Murietta, California.
It has been a long time since I have kept tropical fish, and I had had glass fish before. I thought they had somehow bred them for these colors. I never imagined that they would have been dyed. I bought a pair.
The one fish died just a little more than two weeks after I got it... I will never, ever, buy any painted fish again."
