Another puzzle for me is this pair of silver fish i have they have 12 spots or so on each tophalf in 3 rows going horizontal if you look at
You will see at 22 seconds in at the bottom right of the screen the pair are together then at around 1:22 into the mov. 1 is at the top of the tank swimming after some food I dont know what these are but no other fish really accepts them even the frontosas (WOW) who are the most tame. Any help will almost solve my unknowns.

If you look at his tank you can see a better picture of one and to get a good look at it you can use something like photoshop and blow the picture up.

Looks like your gunna need a bigger tank.
