Great shots there, I always get a chuckle when I look at all my tiny tetras and know that they are cousins to piranhas.

I want to finish Congo?s part of that thread with some shots of my <span style='color:quot'>Tetra Congo Gold</span>.
First, one photo of Tetra Congo female to make any compares with ?gold? variety:

Image

Tetra CONGO Gold female:

As you see, the ?golden? nuance is always in combination with other reflecting colors from the tanks interior?

Tetra CONGO Gold male:

My daughter Gabby saw that tread and upbraid me for that I was present one of her also favorite T.Congo fishes,
like very ugly and horrible?:mad:
That because, I promised her to finish really that part of T.Congo with something ?beautiful??:D
Taking these shots, I had try to catch more details and to a nicety colors of the fishes?

Image

Image

That is one curious result:
The next 2 pictures are not cropped!
On the first, I tried to frame the pair in the center with enough space around?
but then all the fishes details aren?t seem so clear?:rolleyes:

Image


On the second photo, just a few millimeters closer and centred only the male ? the details are much expressive?:flirt:

Image

The other curious was about the lightning(flashing)?
You may compare the difference between - shooting with a flash above the tank...
and shooting straight in front the fish... with this two close ups:

Image

Image

The colors are real, not photoshoped?What do you think about?!?

Those are (as always) excellent! Very interesting colour on some of the fish.... very unusual! Never seen any like that. I can see why your daughter likes them!

I prefer the first of the two photos because the colours look more natural: in the second photo the neon blues are brought out because of the flash so look slightly artificial and the belly seems too white. On the first four photos, did you use an overhead flash as well?

Continuing with another my favorite Tetras - veiltail <span style='color:red'>Hyphessobrycon callistus callistus</span>
Growing up, they are not much spectacular, but being adult ? they are attractive and beautiful?Image


Image

That?s one crop showing their typical feature ? the veil tail and fins elegancy?

Image

I got 9 of them and they just don?t much visible between all other Discus, Rainbows, Tetras?
But they zone the tank, and every male watching for his own territory very strictly?
Only sometimes, some female, goes to cross that borders and coquette in front the dominant male?


Image

The other guys just jealous gaping?:rolleyes:

Image

But don?t forget ? they are the cousin of Piranha too?
if you make them angry ? just see how they look...Image...Image
