Re: Del Rio Tetra

OK here's a picture of one... I know it's blurry, but it's the best I could get so far... little suckers just won't slow down!!!
They're very pretty, maybe 1" long, sort of a copper red color in front, black back half. Anyone know what it is?

It's the little tiny, tiny fin that is on top behind the Dorsal Fin but in front of the tail. And Butterfly, the reason it doesn't have one is because it's a Rasbora ;D

I'm pretty sure that it isn't a catfish either

I was just throwing that out there. But I think you know what I mean.
