The so-called "longfin" serpae is just a strain of the same fish (Hyphessobrycon eques) developed by selective breeding, i.e., not a natural species, to have longer fins. As far as I can recall, they are otherwise the same.

On the fish in the photo I posted, the front portion of the base of the dorsal fin (the fin on the back of the fish) is not black. It looks sort of pale reddish.
