That is Gymnocorymbus ternetzi or common names Black Skirt Tetra or Black Widow Tetra. It is included in our profiles, just click on the shaded name to see the info on requirements, etc.

it was best to ask as could have spent hours searching to identify it.,
I just had a look at the profile... but is it compatible with neon tetras, platy and guppy?
thanks anyway.

Please understand I am not intending to be cynical--but did you really read the profile? The answer to this question is under "Compatibility/Temperament." It says in soft water tanks, it is fine with other characins (tetra are characins), and in harder water tanks fine with livebearers (platy, etc). Note though that it needs a group of at least 6, or it can get nippy. And this species gets "largish" so it needs swimming room.

I did look but did not realise it was a characin....was looking for the actual fish name rather than the look.

It looks so much looks like a piranha with its the evil face!!
