Von Rio Flame Tetra
Not a very good fish
Pictures make out the species as quite colorful but in real life they are quite bland and as tetras go they are fairly aggressive not only with themselves but towards other tetra species... Sorry I bought them, wished I could get rid of them and just settle for Neons as they are not only very colorful but docile and school beautifully.......

Very hardy fish.
I like to call these guys the police of my tank. If any of the other fish get nippy, or start bullying, my Von rios always let them know it's not okay. I have one with a deformed mouth. I call him Jabberjaws. He doesn't seem to have any trouble keeping up with the rest of the school.

We recently lost power for 3 1/2 days. Platies, rasboras, cherry barbs, head-and-taillight tetras - all gone. But ALL of the orange von Rio tetras made it! These are some tough little fish.

I bought a school of 5 Von Rio Flame Tetras at Petsmart about a month ago. They are all doing well! When I first got them they were really pale, but once they got used to their new home they started turning bright red. Very pretty fish! They also like to swim in the middle of my tank instead of hiding behind plants like some other tetra's I've had. I really like these little fish & would buy them again.
