    Bucktooth Tetra

    Neat fish i saw at PU in bayers lake today. I'm wondering if anybody has had any personal experience with these little guys? Apparently they're definitely a species only fish.

    No exp with them but I am with you. I would love to keep them, species only tank of course. I do believe it is only shinny fish they go after as they love to strip them of the scales.

    I've read online that the more the better and you'd be surprised how small their bio load is. a 75 gallon can apparently handle 50+ of these little fellas. Was talking to the fish section manager and he said he isnt planning on ordering anymore of them, which sucks because he only has 6 in stock.

    I'm a tetra fan but I had to look that one up. This made me chuckle: "The fish's natural diet consist of small invertebrates, other fish, and plants. It is not a safe tank mate for fellow tetras because it will eat small fish and it is not a safe tank mate for larger species because it is a notorious lepidophage."

    In short: a badass little fish. LOL
