I have some of the little characins similar to Serrapinnus kriegi but with a spot on the side of the body. Do they have a name?

Like a smaller version of Roeboides. Should get to about 2", I know someone who bred them.

Brilliant, didn't think anyone was breeding tetras anymore. Able to share any details?

The fry grew up to be Hyphessobrycon heliacus which I had entirely forgotten I had. Oops!

I still have the adults if anyone near me wants them? I need to shift them.

 

btw I was sure I had updated this thread ????

Don't remember seeing an update, or has a post disappeared?

I had them with Hemigrammus marginatus and Brochis splendens with no aggression either with each other or the other fish. Some occasional side on display was all there was.
