Other tetras that look the same as serpaes though differences are still present are Hyphessobrycon robertsi and Hyphessobrycon bentosi.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Size really doesn't matter. Even in large numbers. they have a tendency to attack other fish. They're worse than tiger barbs.
You're lucky though but you have to keep a close eye on them to see any possible nipping.
