Guess what's in the tank?

Alright so I brought a tank second hand. Three foot with filter and heaters, seemed like a good deal. Came with 20 or so fish. Not what I planned but I'm flexible enough.

The guy didn't know what was in there. I've seen neons (now in hospital tank) Angelfish, what I think are Silver Dollars, Clown loaches, but the rest I'm completely lost. So feel free to take a guess. Also any idea what's wrong with the neons? In a tank with fungus cure but doesn't seem to be going much.

Congrats on the new tank! Unfortunately I'm not sure what is the matter with that neon.

I'm not seeing the silver dollar or the Buenos Aires. Might be missing them if someone wants to point them out. I see neon, head and tail light, von rio, black widow, and emperor tetra as well as tiger barb and clown loach.

Sorry if you're already aware of this, but that clown loach will easily outgrow a three foot tank, plus all the fish you have should be in groups of at least six.

Ahh the BAs are head and tail lights.

SD in the second picture, although maybe not? Might just be a trick angle or something that makes it look round and I had silver dollar in my head because the OP mentioned them.

Ahh! That's the one I was thinking was a black widow due to the shape and those two dark vertical stripes on the body.

I'm looking at it and looking at mine, looking at it and looking at mine. I think it's a SD. 95% sure. But like I said it could be a funny angle or something.

I'll try to get some better pics of the possible SD/ black widow tomorrow. I know the clown loach with outgrow the tank and am not sure what I'm going to do about it. Might have a bigger tank before then hopefully.

Well, since you can see the fish, you can compare it to an Internet picture and confirm the identity.

Looking now and I think they are black widow tetras. Thanks for all the help.
