This is a very interesting and beautiful new sport of tetra. One can only guess that it belongs to the species Hyphessobrycon herbertaxelrodi, but there is no other species known in the hobby that fits better.
Two characters make this fish very desirable: the extraordinary strong schooling behaviour and the intensive dark coloration of the body that is contrasting with the bright light head.
We have obtained these fish as bred ones from Singapore. Currently they are about 2-3 cm long, we suppose that threy will become – like the Black Neon – about 3-4 cm long.
For our customers: the fish have code 260922 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
