pics were enhanced a little to show the finnage better but only the contras and clarity were tweaked a bit.

They are not a new strain. They are just a 'deformed' version of a penguin tetra due to inbreeding. You can try and breed your 'New Strain' with a regular Penguin tetra.... they will definitely breed!

They are genetically the same as the penguin tetras.
