Yeah I really like them. I love how the colors on the fin have irregular edges. For this and I suppose the colors, they remind me of brush strokes on old Japanese paintings.

I'm not sure these observations hold true for the specie in general, but in my tank they are very peaceful and calm. They don't go out of their way to push other fish around, but they definitely know how to hold their ground. When a blue tetra is being pushy (always!) and wanders in the group of pristellas, they ignore the twitching intruder and stay their ground. This is pretty much when the fruitless intrusion ends.

Although they are not big on enforcing boundaries as individuals, in my tank the alpha fish is female (I think she's the one in the bottom left of the picture). In my school of 10 I have a large female to male ratio, so it might just be coincidence.

Definitely not a flashy fish, but I find there's something very peaceful and elegant about them. Both look and demeanor wise, I think they have become my favorite tetra.
