They have been in the tank about a month, definitely not the new bleached out look. I don't see them getting gold, but that is a significant resemblance.They look like silvertip tetras to me. Are they fairly new? Silvertips tend to be more towards gold, but they can be a tad faded if they haven't yet settled in.
And is that a blue crowntail betta stuffed back there in the plants?
AHH! I found it!
I knew that tetra I first mentioned that looks similar to Corydoras hastatus was not the right one I was thinking of.
The one I am referring to, is Odontostilbe kriegi (synonym Serrapinnus kriegi or Cheirodon kriegi), the Three Spot Tetra, and that is indeed the fish you have in the pics, NOT Aphyocharax paraguayensis NOR Corydoras hastatus.
I see that little tetra at my LFS all the time. Always wanted to mix the two, but decided to just stick with one large group of the corys instead. But now that I think about it, I might just get the tetras as well, it might have the corys school more with the tetras!
Found this article too. Seems the three spot corys and Corydoras hastatus naturally occur together in nature. Even more so considering getting them as well, only if I wasn't planning on breeding the corys though (don't want the eggs getting eaten).
Just heard from another member (roadmaster) that the dawn tetras were the meanest tetra he has ever had. Just thought I'd give you a heads up to avoid the headache!Wow, great info in here!! I'm leaning towards the dawn tetra from what I was able to look up.
And yes, tank is small, but working on porting everything over to an ADA 60p.
