Rummy Nose Tetra - Platinum
Rummy Nose Tetra
The rummy-nose tetra is a species of tropical freshwater characin fish originating in South America. The popular Rummy Nose tetra really brightens up a freshwater aquarium. The bright red faces go dull when they are stressed.
The Platinum colour variation have a much more intense silverish/blue shine to the scales compared to normal rummy nose. The normal rummy nose tetras have their usual whitish/silver body color, but are much less shiny than the platinum ones. The difference can be seen from just a few meters away.
