Hello all, I just went to the LFS on Friday to stock 3 of my tanks that were getting low on fish after a few years. I got 6 tetras that were labeled "Bronze" for a small species tank that recently only had a few cherry shrimp and some red ramshorn snails in it. They are lovely little fish but seem to be very similar to what I see in the gallery as Gold Tetras. Are they the same thing?

My best answer is maybe....
There are a lot of similar species in the genus.
