The name is a bit anthropomorphic but mature adults do have bright red noses like old sailors. Rummynose tetras look great in a school with their sharp black and white caudal fins and tend to school in the mid levels of the tank. The males and females get the red noses and the red becomes more prominent as the fish ages, just like a heavy drinker. AquariumFishSale.com imports wild and bred rummynose tetras, depending on the season. These tetras can be found in most countries within the Amazon basin.
