Male Emperor tetra.

"Emperor Tetra" is a very suitable name for this majestic 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. The female is more plumb than the male when they reach maturity and has smaller fins.
