Tetras are the most common type of fish found in South America after catfish. Their name is commonly used for a large group of fish characterised by the presence of a small adipose fin between their dorsal and caudal fin. The term Tetra is actually not a taxonomic grouping, as many unrelated fishes from differing families have been commonly called Tetras. Tetras are the second most commonly kept fish in community tank setups, after livebearers. Max Size: 5.5cm


Many Tetras are omnivorous and will readily take most types of aquarium foods used in the hobby. Due to the small size of many species, ensure that food particles are not too large for their small mouths. We recommend feeding a small dry pellet in conjunction with AI Naturals Range Frozen Tropical Mix, and Frozen Brine Shrimp to provide a balanced diet.


Tetras are best kept in large schools (minimum 6 in the group) and different species can generally be kept together with few problems.
