From the picture the best thing I can think of is a silver dollar you might want to google that for pics to check

Try and get a closer picture. Could be a number of different things, looks quite young and a silver dollar is a good guess clown.

get more white ones, the color is going to fade to white anyway. the way they color those fish is pure cruelty. no serious aquarist would buy them

Not a very nice practice. I agree that no serious aquarist would buy them.

I know and im definitely not passing judgment on OP i wanted to give my opinion on fish inking just Incase anyone diggs up the thread in the future. I wanted to make sure the inhumane and cruel implications of inking fish hovers in the thread.
