hi all,

i was in the LFS last night and saw they had a tank of yellow tinted tetra type fish - it had the same body style as a large neon but the colour was a pearlescent dull/dirty yellow, no red markings on the eyes or fins etc

there wasnt a name plate or anyone about that knew what they were.


any ideas??

I would advise posting a picture. Descriptions alone are not sufficient and there are over hundreds of tetra species, not just a few dozens.

Young glowlight tetras can look amazingly dull. Often, you don't see much of the glowing stripe, and the red on the dorsal fin may come later. The white fin tips develop last.

Young rummynose tetras in hard water might also fit the bill. They are somewhat yellow, young ones have hardly recognizable black stripes in the tail fin, and in hard water they might not show their red noses.

But, as has been said, there are countless possibilities ;).
