Acquired: Fish / pet store
Posted Jul 08, 2013
I had wanted some fish that school and I got head and tail tetras for a bargain but was unhappy with their drab appearance. Recently I got 3 bloodfin tetras for just a few dollars more than what I paid for the other tetras and these bloodfins are a great addition to my tank. Their bright red fins are striking as they zip around my tank. They are very flighty fish, very active,. The 3 of them school together but do not school with my other tetras. They fit perfectly into feeding time at my tank. The goldfish gobbles at the surface, the head and tails grab pellets in the middle, and the bloodfins zip around the bottom catching the rest.
The bloodfins were very nervous of my other fish in the beginning but now seem comfortable.
I paid $16.99 for 3 fish. With these fish my tank feels whole.
