Male Emperor tetra.

I find the name "Emperor Tetra" very suitable for this fish

Emperor tetra was another of my planned breeding projects for 2005 and I had them in my 325 liter community tank for a while until I abandoned my plan for 2005.

The emperor has a full length black bar on the lower half of the body and beautiful fins with a yellow coloration and eyes with black and blue colors.
