Hi Dee,

You should never buy a fish without researching it first, it is very important to know the scientific name. It is very important to know the requirements of their diet and how to maintain them. Just buying a bunch of different fish and throwing them together is a recipe for a disaster and is very irresponsible. I can only hope that what you are doing is research.

This appears to be "Lamprologus" callipterus
