I hate you. j/k
I have decided in the last few days that my favorite Tetra, and perhaps fav. fresh water fish is the Emperor Tetra and I want them.
Very nice pictures and thank you for you time and dedication to helping and sharing.

Very nice looking fish. Have been contemplating these fish for some time and the photos have confirmed that I must have some. One of the photos pictured blue eyes . Do their eyes appear blue or was it the way light hit them? Always been a sucker for blue eyes.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

I have three of them in my community tank. Two have green eyes and one has blue eyes. I love love love them.

Angel, I think I finally figure out where to find the macro settings on my digital camera so I can post some aquarium pics. this weekend. It's about freakin time huh?

Emperors rock!

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

You know for THE LONGEST time I was totally torn between them & Kerri Tetras; since the bodies are the same but coloration is diff....Now I'm happy with what I got

I need to do gardening this weekend thou the Rotala is so long again; its actually blocking the greater left side of the tank's light right now and that ain't good for the tiger lotus.

1077; no their have indeed blue eyes but 9 outta 10 pictures I couldn't get them to show right; actually when watched live for a while dep on the angle their're turning they shimmer green and then BAM this beautiful blue.

Romand I couldn't wait to see some of your tank/ fish pictures!!!

Oh, I love them! And talk about paparazzi, I have, oh, ATM 250 photos in my aquarium photo file. Granted, half of them are blurry bc we have to take a dozen to get one clear shot but hey, it's worth the effort.

THanks for sharing, we sure do love pix!

Wow. Beautiful, as always. What's the plant in the background of the 2nd and 3rd picture? I might swap out one of my Amazon Swords for that. I think the Angels would love swimming through that.

And yes the Tetras LOVE going in & outta there
