Thread: Tetra ID

    If any body knows what the name of the tetra is at the beginning of this video is (the one with the black stripe and orange/gold stripe above it) I would appriciate it
    I found them at the LFS store years ago and bought them (there were only 5), the owner could not remember what they were called as she had thrown her invoice away. I thought they were Hyphessobrycon vilmae at the time but thats a different, not as attractive fish.



    I've never seen them again untill I found this video. The guys got alot of other tetras you never see but I could ID them. I don't think the person could cram another fish in that tank, LOL!!

    Body shape isn't that common for a tetra. Dorsal fin is unusual for a torpedo shaped tetra.
    I was thinking either of the Nematobrycon species but they don't quite fit. Seems the best match t hough

    A hybrid maybe? Those are different looking for sure. I like them.

    Well that's a bit of a tough one.

    I'm leaning toward Hyphessobrycon vilmae but just based on photos

    Yeah I thought of H. vilmae but it's different as you can see in this video.

    Steeler eliminates Hyphessobrycon vilmae as a possibility in his first post.

    I am really bad with tetras so I can not be of much help. Somehow it feels African to me but I have no idea why i say that.

    Edit: seems like he beat me to it.
    Do as I say. Not as I do.

    I thought maybe H. nigricinctus because of the finnage but the coloring is all wrong.

    If we run the Japanese text trough the translate we get: "Haifesoburikon Ville Mahe"
    which is japanese rendition of Hyphessobrycon vilmae. Seems to be just a very well coloured fish.

    Maybe the way the light is hitting it is making it seem more vibrant. This had me searching for hours last night. I couldn't find one that looked just like it. I even went a s far as translating every video's text by that user. lol

    Yeah I saw him but the stripe doesn't seem to go through the eye like the one in the video.

    Here's a couple vilmae photos I used to compare:
