New fish..don't know what it is. any help?

Found these guys in a Meijer pet dept. in an unmarked tank. They charged me about 1.99 each. I bought 8. Wondering what kind of Tetra they are?



Thanks![/img]

I found an uncanny similar looking fish with the same patterns of yellow and black on both fins that was labled as a "lemon tetra"

Nope. X-ray tetra. Lemon tetras have red coloration on top of their eyes. The-Wolf was right.;)

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.

That is correct, it's the X-ray Tetra......

Even though it is the same planet, underwater is a whole different world.
