I think I was sent the wrong fish

I ordered 8 bloodfin tetra around a month ago, they didn’t look like the picture on the website but I thought it was because they were juveniles, but now I’m starting to think I was sent green fire tetras by mistake.

All of my fish arrived alive, even the extra. The fish all look healthy and are very active. Great addition to my tank.

I love them

Great additions, showed up alive and active and with an extra buddy! Their red colorations really pop in my planted tank.

Bloodfin Tetra and Hillstream Loach

Shipped UPS overnight. The packing was incredibly secure and kept the fish safe. They were all live and so active and healthy even in the bags when initially removed from packaging. I acclimated them and placed them into the cycled aquarium and they have been active and healthy since.

I was so pleased and would recommend Flip Aquatics to everyone.
