Pristella Tetra Questions, What is this fish i got with my Pristellas, ect...
Today i went out and got Pristella Tetras, seven of them. Or what i thought was seven!
I had to go to work, so my boyfriend acclimated them to the QT, and when i got home, i noticed one didnt liik like the others!
So, you guys want to help me identify him/her? I=m thinking it might be a bleeding heart tera?
Its schooling with my pristellas, and doesnt seem to know its different!
Also, is this normal Priscella behavior?

It seems like just chasing, but id liek to make sure.
And one of my pristellas has a black spot on its head. It seems to be level with the scales, not a bulge, or bumpy, though very noticeable.

In the last vid, you can see Not A Pristella, as ive been calling him/her. =].
Oh, and i got myself a dwarf gourami. It was in the same tank as the pristellas! I couldent resist! Ill be making another thread about him/her.
That kinda looks like a Bleeding Heart Tetra...
Thats what i thought!
Does anyone think i could keep him in the school? Or is it best to return him and get another pristella..
I would think to return it for another Pristella. He might realize he's not one of them and start to get depressed.
Ugh, i think your right.
My boyfriend just thought it was a female pristella, I told him good try, but nope!
Ill bring him back tomorrow and get a few more pristellas...
Your mystery fish is a Pristella Tetra. There are 2 varieties which are sold today, and this one is a "Gold Pristella". It is not uncommon to see them mixed and this accident occur. No reason at all to return him... he doesn't know he is an odd ball.
Yeah, in my other thread, I found out hea a blue gourami!
I hate when pet stores mislabel!
I'm not sure what I want to do about him though..
He's so pretty, and doesn't have the chance of the virus dwarfs have..
I'm wondering if I could just keep him alone? How big or small a tank can I do this in? Would a 15 gal long be okay for him?
And I wish I had Internet on my phone, since I need wifi to use my itouchs Internet...these things wouldn't happen to me!
