Again, feel free to post your own tetra pics here, too! Very Happy


African moon tetra, Bathyaethiops breuseghemi


School of African moons


Belotti's tetra, Hemigrammus belottii. Look for these if your LFS stocks large numbers of cardinal tetras--you may find these fish as 'contaminants' or 'by-catch' as they occur in the same habitats.


Male Kerr's blue tetra (a.k.a. blue emperor tetra), Inpaichthys kerri


Green (false) neon tetra, Paracheirodon simulans

I'll post more pics in another thread so that these pages don't take forever to load for folks. Hope you enjoy! Very Happy

Again, Great pics and really nice fish. I especially like the one where they are all in a line. Very nice. I don't know how you get such good pics of such active fish. Very Happy

Wow, how long did it take to get those great pictures.......The picture with the tetras in a line is almost like when teachers made the students line up "in single file" to get in....LOL! The first picture of the moon tetra is worthy of a huge pat on the back! Very healthy fish, and perfectly centered shot! Very Happy

Thanks, you two. You should know that for all photographers--amateurs and professionals alike--for every good shot you see posted there are probably ten or twenty more that end up on the cutting room floor. Skysong, I'd like to take credit for getting that African moon tetra perfectly centered in the viewfinder, but I'd be lying through my teeth. Confused They just move too damn much! Put simply, it takes a LOT of patience, a LOT of frames, and more than a touch of luck before I get ONE picture that I can salvage through cropping, resizing, and/or adjusting for contrast. But, you still have to have good raw material to begin with, and that means getting a good shot that you can work with. In case you're interested, I shared my photographic techniques in this prior discussion. It's a bear to read, but so far it's given me the best pictures.

Yes 2la you should have done this a long time ago, I think tetras are beautiful fish and deserve as much love~~ as any other fish...


This is a head and tail tetra resting in mid-water.


This is a rummy nose tetra, a recent addition to my community tank.

Ian, the plant is Glossostigma elatinoides. I have another picture of it in my Photo Album thread entitled "A few teasers".
