What kind of tetra is this?
I got them on sale at Petco back in September.... they helped me cycle my 55G when I set it up (there were originally 5 now only 2 :cry: ) anyways they were in a tank that was just a general Tetra tank, just wondering what type they are? I don't normally keep Tetras.

(Sorry about my horrid photography)

Kinda hard to see on these pictures...googel image results for Pristella maxillaris that should be what you got there as far as I can tell from the picture.

That is exactly what it is!
Thanks!!! :)

Oh... and I meant to say there are 3 left, not 2! LOL

Wow, I have these exact tetras, and also was unsure exactly what type they are. I was also going to post a "what kind of tetra is this?" thread, but now I know. Thanks!

I will be adding this fish to the Fish Profiles section on this forum this morning, so check back later today and you should see some information about this nice little tetra. It will be under the Characins category, as Pristella Tetra.
