Anyone see or hear of these?
They're a "new product" at Petsmart...I ran by them yesterday when I was getting my oto's. They're pretty neat. They're like a pearly light green with pink/red tips around their fin areas. It took me all I had not to buy some.
Plus they were only $1.99 each.

You had it right. More and more species seem to be coming on the screen.

I like the green rams. Wonder how a tank of blue and green and gold would do?

They are a color variation of a species that's been in the hobby a long, long time: Aphyocharax rathbuni. Its in all my reference books. Used to be called a kind of bloodfin (Rathbun's Bloodfin), as they are in the same Genus.

I must say, now that I have had these a few weeks and their colors have come out, I am absolutely thrilled that I got them! They are sooooooo pretty.
I've noticed though that they don't seem as hyper active as my neons.
The neons play chase all day long and these guys just kinda roam around and check stuff out.
