Other common names include:: White Tip Tetra, White Fin Ornate Tetra, and Bentos Tetra, False Rosy Tetra.
The Ornate Tetra resembles its cousin so closely that this fish is commonly known as the False Rosy Tetra. Both have a pink-to-deep-salmon coloration, though the Ornate Tetra is a bit more transparent. Both also have darker red markings on their fins. However, the Ornate Tetra always has white-tipped fins while the Rosy Tetra may or may not, and the Rosy Tetra has a black marking or 'flag' on its dorsal fin.
