thanks. i just found a picture of gold barbs and they look identical to mine.
i always thought barbs are semi-aggressive. these 2 just hang out together. i've never seen them even swim at another fish, much less bully anyone.

Not all Barbs are semi-aggressive. Gold Barbs are probably about the most passive Barb of all. Be aware that you will find this fish labeled with a couple of different scientific names. There is Puntius sachsii which is the most popular and the second is Barbus schuberti. I believe that the later of those names is actually the older of the 2 and that the Gold Barb is actually a member of of the Puntius genus.
