Tetra Aquarium Fish

Tetras are found primarily in the streams & rivers of South America and Africa. Most tetras are a very active schooling fish that work well in a peaceful community aquarium. Tetras are an amazing community fish! Tetras do best in well-planted aquariums. Cardinal Tetras & Rumynose are among the most difficult of this species. It is a thought that if you can succeed with Cardinals & Rummynose, you’re probably ready for a crack at Discus! Tetras have several bones that join the inner ear and swim bladder which enhances the hearing of these colorful fish. It is believed that some species of these fish types will stress-out more due to loud sounds or noises and once they lose their slime coat from the stress, they can die. For best results, we suggest keeping tetras in a quiet aquarium or one that is not placed next to a loud TV or Stereo. It is best to keep a minimum of six or more fish of the same species in the aquarium. Many different schools of tetras can be maintained in the same aquarium as this will offer a gorgeous display of fish! If you need help putting together an order of any fish, please give us a call.
