Etymology

Hyphessobrycon comes from the Greek word hyphesson, meaning “smaller” or “of lesser stature” and brycon, meaning “to bite”, together meaning “smaller” or “lesser bite”. Balbus is a Latin word meaning “ shuttering”, referring to its incomplete lateral line.[citation needed]

Hyphessobrycon balbus is silvery gold in color. It can reach lengths of five to six centimeters. It is similar to the Congo tetra (Phenacogrammus interruptus) in shape and size.[citation needed]
