Are Red Finned Neon Tetras a thing?


Recommended Posts

I noticed last night while staring at my tank when I was supposed to be listening to my wife (she shouldn't sit right next to it if she doesn't want me to get distracted) that several of my neons have areas on their fins that have a red tint. Mostly a large patch in the middle of their dorsal fins and then the red coloration from their bodies extends about half way through their tail fin. And it got me wondering. 

Are redfin neons a thing? Can selective breeding produce neon tetras with fully red fins? Has somebody already done this? Should this be my breeding project once I get my fish rack running?
