5 Attachment(s)
so today a single shipment of a new tetra strain arrived from a breeding farm in Kuala Lumpur and i'm the first to have them hehehe 8-) they are slightly shorter, stumpier and has longer finnage then the normal boehlke's penguin fish. the colours remain the same though. hope you guys enjoy the new pics.leave a comment if you want :-D

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

the sumps been running for 2 days now so the new additions in the tank will be fine although some has shown sign of being fin nipped at purchase time a few days in the tank to heal and they will look like new :-D

yup but i have no idea what their likings are as they are a new strain. hopefully they have kept some traits of the original species

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.
