Got some new tetras and its been an up and down just getting them here.
But I love them already!!
Theyve darkened up already by today (they arrived via mail yesterday)
I got the black variety of Nematobrycon palmeri, and the first day they looked more like the standard but darkened up over time and dang they look like they vanish into shadows with a glowing outline. But not pure black, very nice midnight blue and purple tones instead.
Got a male heavy group, however. 7 are males and 2 are females (smaller, green eyes, no tail fin extension)
