    It has a long slender body and it kind of resembles the blood fin tetra except it only has red on the tail. Here is a picture: .

    Does anyone have any idea? I am trying to find out what is killing my cardinal tetras. This would be greatly apreciated!

    Thanks for all of your replies and help. Actually it appears that it is some form of a bloodfin tetra. I did a lot of research yesterday and found that there are a couple different types of bloodfin tetras. It seems that it what they are.

    They also were the ones that were nipping at my cardinals and killing them. I did remove my cardinal tetras yesterday and put them in my guppy tank with my neons. Everyone seems much happier this way.

    However, it is quite strange because I had five cardinals in the 55 gallon and nobody touched them, but then I added 6 more and the bloodfins killed 3 of them within 2 days. Does anyone know why that would be?

    Thanks again!
