[QUOTE="Spokesman101;2480530"]I just got it but walmart tanks are so stupid that they mix match name tags

I am agree with this... Walmart does mix tags up...!! And it's hard to find fish names and information... Plus they don't give good customer attention and fish are usually unhealthy..!! :/ that's why I don't buy fish from there anymore...

Yup
Walmart has no knowledge on how to keep fish. I have never bought from them and I never will.

Ya they r schooling. They are part of the "tropical community tank" group. They might be able to live by themselves but I highly discourage it.
