VENEZUELAN FISH DISCOVERIES
green blood
Ain't that a purdy fishie? It's a green bloodfin tetra (as distinguished from your standard bloodfin tetra), one of several new fish species recently discovered in the Caura River Basin of southeastern Venezuela.

A small school of 6-7 of these little suckers would look great in my aquarium; I've been thinking lately of adding something to the tank. Of course, it'll probably be a long while before this new fish will be available for purchase in petstores. Plus, since they haven't been bred in captivity, it'll likely take a while before the green bloodfin will be hardy enough to be worth keeping for hobbyists like me.
