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"!

I agree, Tanichthys albonubes.

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

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.

Guess they came from another source.

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.
