Orange Lemon Tetra (Hyphessobrycon cf. pulchripinnis)

Out of stock

Remarks: Orange Lemon Tetras (Hyphessobrycon cf. pulchripinnis) begin as pale orange fish but turn deep orange as they mature and settle into their tank. They have bright red eyes and light red cheeks, which makes them stand out against both planted backgrounds and mazes of driftwood. To encourage their best colors to show, it is best to keep them in groups of 6 or more. They are considered a closely related species to the Lemon Tetra, though these are found in Bolivia and lack the black edge on the anal fin. Science may one day determine they are a separate species!
