What kind of fish ????
Hi , today I've bought new fish to my tank .In the Pet shop they said that they were called Rainbow Skirt Tetra - I googled the name and found only 1 page about them .Can anyone give me more info ?
I would expect this to be a colour morph of the orignal South American species, Gymnocorymbus ternetzi, the Black Skirt Tetra. "Blueberry tetra", "Strawberry Tetra" are some others. Care is the same as for the original species. These colour morphs do not occur in the wild, they are aquarium strains developed by aquarists.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]
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]
