Super Serpae Tetras (Hyphessobrycon eques), also known as Jewel Tetras or Red Minor Tetras, are characins native to the Amazon Basin. Their bright red coloration and hardiness make them a popular choice for freshwater community tanks. Make sure to keep these fish in groups with similarly-sized and temperament fish, as they can outcompete smaller, slow-moving tankmates!
