Fish similar to Copella carsevennensis but redder #1
I saw this fish in the shop, I havent got the picture but if no one has any idea, I can try to get a picture later.

The fish is similar to Copella carsevennensis but it is much redder.

Size is also similar

Re: Fish similar to Copella carsevennensis but redder #3
Thanks for quick reply Fishlady.

Splash Tetra and other pencil fishes were the first came to my mind too. But the color is redder, like C.Vilmae and the fins are a little longer than splash tetra.

However the color I saw was still much redder than these in the picture and the shape is closest to C.Carsevennesis. Or I'd say almost identical but different color. I will try to take a picture first thing in the morning.

Anyway I believe it is probably belong to Copella. species. And I have read on seriously that they require "well-oxygenated with a little surface agitation advisable". Does that mean they like moving water or still water?

They look like young male cherry barbs to me.
