Yep, just another selectively-bred variety of Paracheirodon innesi, & if you ask me much less attractive than the wild type. They're being sold as "diamond neons" in my area.

Apistogramma agassizi. They're awsome! I bred them in a 10 gallon with a substrate of oak leaves. They're not picky eaters - flake is eagerly accepted, but they need soft water to breed.
