    Looks like a dull Bloodfin tetra.

    not 100% some other members are alot better at ID fish.

    he's too white. I thought it was bloodfin , but I Doubt.:/ Any other guess? And he looks a lil more fatty than normal bloodfins

    Dull Is another type??
  4. JesseMoreira06 Well Known Member Member

    no I ment just doesn't have much color, it's dull. Probably because it's a schooling fish that should be in groups of 6+ and it feels stress being alone so colors dont really come out.

    Can you get a better shot of the tail and dorsal fin? Its got the eyes of a diamond tetra and the anal fin of a Colombian tetra. Agree on the color due to it being alone.

    I agree with eyes looking like diamond tetras , but by the picture it seems to have red on its fins which diamond tetra dont.

    @chromedome52 is good at ID fish.

    Agreed, looks like an albino form of buenos aires tetra sometimes traded as 'golden'. - Hyphessobrycon anisitsi.
    They are very hardy IME, and are not strictly tropical despite being usually sold as such, I've seen them living in pretty coldwater conditions down into the mid to lower 60s (fahrenheit).

    They have a reputation for nipping the fins of tankmates, but this behaviour only tends to be pronounced when insufficient numbers are kept or the tank they are being kept in is too small.

    Thanks guys.yes , agree it totally looks like albino buenos aires tetra. He's alone by himself . Are they schooling fish? Or he can live by himself?
  12. JesseMoreira06 Well Known Member Member

    schooling fish 6+.

    Don't have room for 5 more fishes:(. I will ask any local lfs to keep them with their group. But if they don't , he will be alone by himself:(. He's litllr more active than yesterday. Eating , roaming here n there

    That is a female, as well. They can reach close to 4 inches, males only get about 3. It is a shoaling fish, and IME, they will still be aggressive even in a group. The species comes from very far south, well into subtropical zone, possibly even into the temperate zone. Albinos are only slightly more delicate than the regular.

    he's not aggressive at all. Too quite, maybe because he's alone
