    what a cool little fish! def not a penguin. i have those and they look nowt like that!
    i just chop my plants in half when they reach the top of the water and plonk them in the substrate, i dont even trim the leaves! they just keep growing!! i bunched a load of the them and floated them for the fry and they love it! certainly good value for money!
    good luck with your mystery fish carol!

    Definitely NOT a Congo tetra. I have those, and they are big tetras, about the size of a larger rainbow, and have long flowing fins and tails, and iridescent colors and large scales! But as to what it is ????? Sorry.

    Do you still have that fish? I see this thread was started way back - it looks like a silver-tip tetra to me.

    yep still got them I went to the store and looked at the silver tip tetras and they didn't look the same. and yep this thread gets revived every once in awhile when somebody thinks they know what it is. One of these days maybe we'll get it

    Nope, Their not much bigger than neons and shaped about the same. the store owner I got them from had been in business for over twenty years and didn't know what they were. they came in with something he had ordered. they resemble several different fish then when I go look their different. They school with the neons and never bother anybody.

    The golden tetra is closest but there is no color on them at all except the spot on the caudal peduncle.
