Thanks,
I thought so, looks like Petco miss-labeled them, sold them to the person I got the eggs from (in some free Java moss) as "Blue Tetras"!

18 species/varieties of fish, 15 species/varieties of plants - The fish are finally ahead of the plants!
*560 gallons (2120 liters) in 5 tanks -> you do the math.

I agree, Tanichthys albonubes.

Blue Tetra? That's a far stretch. But then, common names again...

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Yeah, once they got large enough I found a "blue tetra" picture and it was waaay off. Thanks for all the ID help folks! Much appreciated.

Got plants and unexpected White Clouds, that was a nice surprise. No wonder my ID wasn't making sense when I PM'd you! Assumed the eggs came in your huge mass of Java moss, but must have come from Erin's plants.
