Fish Flame Tetra
Product Code : 023
Brand Name : Fresh Water
The coloring of the Flame Tetra, also called the Fire Tetra or Von Rio Tetra, is generally silver in the front but becomes a fiery red on the back, especially at the base of the fins. When they are exposed to a lot of disturbances, they become very timid and their coloring will pale. They don't always show off real well in pet store aquariums where they are exposed to a lot of activity, and for this reason are not the most popular of tetras.</p>
<p>To keep them best in your aquarium, provide them with a pleasant envorinment with friendly tankmates. Once the Flame Tetra is established in a calm aquarium they become very active. They are no longer timid and are a very pretty fish. They are happiest in a school of 6 or more and do best if kept with other smaller fish in a peaceful environment. They are hardy fish and are very easily bred. As a matter of fact, they are recommended for a beginner that wishes to experience fish breeding!
