Emperor or fool?..

The title was not meant literally...😅 I recently purchased a " black emperor tetra" at a local pet store but I googled it and it does not look like the pictures on google... I hope its just my imagination... Sorry could not get better pics it is a very energetic fish.

give it time to settle the colors are due to stress. The shape looks right.
