...okay, please don't beat me up too bad, but I was in the BST forum a couple weeks back and someone had some small red fish for sale.

The one thing that I remember most is that they only got up to 3/4" long and they were shaped more rounded like this :fish: instead of bullet shaped like a neon tetra. I was looking into something for my daughters 9 gallon BioUbe she is getting for Christmas. Anyway, they were red in color and I think they had speckles about them much like a jewel cichlid.

I swore I book marked the page that I looked up in my browser but I apparently didn't or hid it from myself. I went back through my browser history to the first of November and found nothing.

Anywho, if anybody has any remote idea of what these little fish might be I'd appreciate your help. I've poured through pages and pages of Google images for 'small red fish' and various other searches but still nothing.

Thanks and I apologize for the broad description. :icon_sad:

Maybe you are talking about an ember tetra? They're kind of small, red and sparkly.

Perhaps scarlet badis (dario dario)?

John! You nailed it my friend! Thanks so much!

And seeing pictures of them, my description was mostly correct. :p

And thanks to everyone else for guessing with my lack of information. :)
