I went to walmart to get some neons to supplment the ones I have and are probably lonely. And mentioned how mean my flame tetras are. The clerk asked me to point to the flame tetras.. She told me those aren't flame, those are Serpae Tetras.. appearantly the last clerk didn't know the difference. So I guess that's why these guys beat my guppies so hard.

For google references, flame tetra is Hyphessobrycon flammeus while serpaes are Hyphessobrycon serpae. Hyphessobrycon sweglesi is often confused with serpaes but not really nippy at all.
