Firehead Tetra - Hemigrammus bleheri
– Often confused with two similar species sold in pet shops, the “true” rummy-nose, (Hemigrammus rhodostomus), and the ‘false’ rummy-nose, (Petitella georgiae). In healthy fish, only the Firehead Tetra will have red coloration extending past the gill covers. Many different coloration varieties are artificially selected and sold in pet shops
– The intensity of the red coloration is an indicator of the overall health of the fish.
