    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.

    Is it a predatory species?

    Micropredators, they are not like Roeboides.

    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 ????

    Hehe. :) Were these aggressive either between themselves or with other fishes Graham?

    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.
