Description of Yellow Tetra Fish Not to be confused with the Lemon Tetra (H. pulchripinnis), the Yellow Tetra has two dark bands just behind the gills. These are most apparent in males, which are more brightly colored overall. The males also have a more concave anal fin than the females. Successful spawning is not difficult to achieve if the fish are in good condition. Fry foods intended for egg-laying species can be used for the young tetras once they are free-swimming.
