I have three of these that I bought because they were labled as black neons in the store and I wanted to give my existing black neons some school mates. When I got them, I thought they just had awful colours because they were juveniles. Then they grew into these beautiful fish that I had real trouble identifying until I found this site. A beautiful, peaceful fish with a voracious appetite for frozen brine shrimp. I just wish I had one good school of one certain type of tetra, instead two groups of three lonely tetras. How incompetent to completely mislabel a fish in a shop! How incompetent of me to buy them!
