    This was no easy task-The tetra won't stay still-had to take bursts and take the best pic.

    @DoubleDutch: I wouldn't say they scares nor commonly sold at the LFS.I asked my LFS to get me some.They a very dull looking tetra due to stress ect with import but if you give them a chance to become what they ment to look like they make a spectacular addition to you're tank.Ive seen pics of them on the net using a flash,looking more metallic of sorts with the scales reflecting the light and deeper greens.

    This is just a rondom pic i have on my phone when using a flash to give you an example.

    A pic taken off the net of what they more or less look like when at the LFS,easily mistaken for a fugly fish and I guess not really appealing to the mass market.images (18).jpeg
    A more professional photo taken from the net but I don't know the extent of photographic "tricks" used to get it so beutiful as I don't know to much about taking photos-Im a point and shoot guy.Or maybe it's just what they look like in optimal conditions.
