    One of the Pyrrhulina species of the brevis species-group. Nice fish that can get some size, around 3"/7.5 cm. Males can get a bit territorial and chase other fish, but don't do any real harm.

    I have some of these. They were imported to my local LFS as splash tetras (apparently from a fish farm!). They're growing at some rate and looking like they'll start to spawn soon. Had some similar P. cf. brevis before, but only have one left. Incidentally, I have C. arnoldi too!
