Ember Tetra (Hyphessobrycon amandae)


One of the more vividly colored small tetras in the hobby, the Ember Tetra or Amandae Tetra originates in the upper Araguaia River in Southern Brazil, although nearly all specimens in the hobby are commercially bred in Asia. A hardy and adaptable fish, they make an excellent addition to most community aquariums and are especially impressive as a small school in a planted or aquascaped tank. Like most schooling tetras, they are best kept in groups of 10 or more. Slightly acidic water, subdued lighting, or the addition of some botanicals like Indian Almond Leaves to release tannins into the water will help the Ember Tetra show its most vivid coloration in the aquarium
