What an awesome little Tetra! I confess I hadn't seen it before. Great pics and great addition to the Gallery, thanks!

Your comments are also fine, but, if you're up to it, in the Galleries we always like to see some more personal observations about keeping a species besides the standard, impersonal 'profile' type data. For example, instead of writing:

'Feeding: flake food, live foods.'

you can write something like I've had these Tetras for X months in my community tank and since day one they were avidly eating flake foods like little piranhas, although they tend to become intimidated by larger fish in the tank. They also really enjoy the brine shrimp I offer at least once a week.
