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.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

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.

Yes, that is the base of the dorsal fin where there is no black.
