It's actually black phantom. Far different from the red phantoms which I have.

Serpaes are so easy to confuse with the Robertsis(Hyphessobrycon robertsi), rosy(Hyphessobrycon bentosi), Red Phantoms(Hyphessobrycon sweglesi) and Black Phantom(Hyphessobrycon megalopterus).

The bentosis lack the black dot on the side of their fins. Red Phantoms can change color from light pink to fiery red. Serpaes just behave differently from other tetras and will nip other fish viciously which is why I avoid them. Black phantoms are just as stunning as the red ones and having the ability to change their color depending on their moods.

But you know, Kathryn, pandas are indeed very cute. I can't resist to keep making comments even on my fish.

Those are some sweet pix.

I'm so glad you posted this, K. I saw these little fellows at the LFS yesterday, and got a shoal of six for my daughter's tank. Cute as a button. Did a sand bottom especially for them. (But kept all the substrate from the old tank plus an active filter, plus decorations that had spent 4 years in an established tank. If it's possible the short the cycle, I have done so.)

Wish my frickin' camera were working.

Wow that makes me miss my pandas. I had 4 of them but thier barbls kept erroding so i had to give them away. I miss thier antics thou. it sucks cause i now have a tank that i set up with sand just for corys and couldnt find any pandas so i went with bronze cory. I wish the person i gave them to would give them back heheheheh.
