Does anyone have any idea what genus these come from? If you can see my avatar I have this fish which someone says is a septemfasciatus. I can't find any fish that looks like this with a species name of septemfasciatus.

Can you see my avatar? I'm having some trouble getting pics to load into my gallery and I haven't loaded them into my website yet.

Not the silver dollars by the way. The fish that has bars/stribes and looks an awful lot like some sort of barb.

I thought it looked like a leporinus species also. I looked up different barbs because I thought I recently
saw those in a fish magazine. I think it might be a large clown barb (Puntius everetti - Syn: Barbus everetti).
I found it on this website http://www.sunderlandaquatics.co.uk/id82.html , just scoll down a bit. It looks pretty
similar. Very nice fish!! Take care. Chris Flo

This guy is about 10 inches and is sharing a 110 tank with a large (12-14 inches) oscar,2 ~6 inch silver dollars a couple small blue acara's and a 5-6 inch jack dempsey. I've only had this guy about 2 weeks and he seems to be eating shrimp pellets off the substrate and occasionally some flake food.
