Hey yall tanks been up and running for a few months now & alls good
I decided to go semi aggressive tank. I have 6 Buenos Aires tetras and 5 beautiful tiger barbs. All doing well. I read that these tetras are better at 7. I went purchased one more and got this. Im so confused cuz he was labeled buenos Aires tetra and he looks nothing like the other 6 and mean...and double there size. Not even the same color. What is he/she? Im taking it back cuz it's bullying everything

The guy on the right? That's a buenos aires tetra. Are you sure the other 6 aren't just albino buenos aires tetra?

Actually now im not sure bc when i purchased the 6 i was told they were beunos aires tetra. But they look completely different so im guessing they are albino. Hes way bigger than the others and very aggressive
