    Hello all…first post here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A4oikHWkKOA

    Can YOU help?

    Sorry about the poor quality video, and the background noise, but I want to find this out ASAP to give them the conditions they need.

    I really would like your opinion on this…

    Thanks in advance

    By the way, when I asked for the Latin name of this “Vietnamese Minnow” he told me “Tanichthys albonubes”, which two minutes on the internet tells me White Cloud Mountain Minnow.

    Well, even I, a relative newcomer, can see they are not WCMMs.

    So, what are they ?

    Not a minnow, not even from the cyprinid family Hemigrammus erythrozonus

    I agree with both of you, and would be concerned about any LFS that could make such a glaring mistake.

    Hi Stickleback, there is a minnow from Vietnam that is closely related to the White Cloud ,perhaps your guy ordered them and got the Glowlights instead ,but as a retailer he should really know his fish a bit more !

    That’s the one! Looks like a tarted up White Cloud with the bright red lips!
