I love those fish. One of my favorite tetras. Emperors and cardinals being the others.

Ooooh, those are pretty. I saw some on my latest trip to the fish store and was thinking about getting some. At the moment I don't have room to add a significant group of schooling fish, though. We'll see.

Great pictures, they really capture the pretty colors.

Yeah, I'm really impressed with these guys. The male in the first pic I just got today along with a female. I'm sure he'll color up nicely once he's settled in. The other male I've had for 2 weeks.

They've settled in nicely. They were spawning today! Of course the other fish were right there to get a caviar snack.
