    I've had this tetra for a month or so in my tank, its been really aggressive to the other fish (probably because it's the only fish of its species in the tank, my younger sister bought it). I'm planning on giving it back to my LFS, but can't seem to identify it. It looks a bit like this hifin blushing white tetra but doesn't have the long fins. A short-finned variety?

    I took a photo of him/her, it's attatched to this post (I think).

    Due to the coloration on his/her dorsal fin, I'd say it's the gold version of the pristella tetra (albino if you will).

    It looks like this Pristella tetra. (Except I thought that albino Pristellas were gold)

    They're always coming up with new color variations. Another wonderful thing about fishkeeping:D.

    And the more annoying for me to try to identify.

    :giggle: That's part of the fun of fishkeeping, learning the new colorations breeders keep coming up with;) Then that leads to the fun of finding them online or the local LFS-it just keeps things interesting;D

    I hope you have a WONDERFUL holiday!

    Sure, I'm having a wonderful holiday, but I'm on my friend's laptop in the middle of Death Valley. Happy New Year everyone!
