Agreed. Poor thing! So sad...she is a long fin variety of the black skirt tetra. Great fish if in a shoal of 8. 6 is reccomended low #, but I found 8 is best. Especially when white skirt tetras are in the mix (same fish, different color)

Gold Gouramis and Opalines are color morphs of the same species Trichopodus trichopterus ( 3 spot Gourami ).

Once they feel better, watch out, they may fight. Gouramis can be very territorial.

That cry is not a dwarf! Way to big! I have had CPOs and he is huge! He can and will kill any fish he can catch!

nice guys thankyou so much can the tetra recover ?
IME black skirts are very tough. I rescued a school that had TERRIBLE fin rot a few years ago. All survived and I still have them.

However, they are a very nippy type of tetra and it is likely he and the Gouramis have had a few battles.
