Comments: This is a Premium Pet Fish, and we rarely see Premium Tetras like this one in any of the live fish stores or online stores that we visit. Premium Pet Fish are more energetic, hardier, and have brighter colors with a beautiful metallic sheen. Click here to learn more about Premium Pet Fish.

Origin: This fish's ancestors lived in the Congo River Basin in Africa, but this fish was spawned and raised on a famous fish farm, and Congo Tetras now live in aquariums throughout most of the world.

Maximum Size: males can grow to be about 3.25" long including their tails. the females are smaller.

Behaviors: This fish is active and males will quarrel with each other but don't do much harm.

Compatibility: Some recommended tank mates include Kribensis Cichlids, Upside Down Catfish, Elephant Nose, Baby Whale, African Leaf Fish, and African Butterfly Fish, which are all African fish. Plus Rainbowfish, Gouramis, Corydoras Catfish, Swordtails, Mollies, and other so-called community fish. But not fish like Tiger Barbs and Serpae Tetras that will nip at their long fins. Click here to read more about compatible groups of pet fish.

Temperature: They can live pretty well from about 72 to 80 degrees F., but they're probably most comfortable at about 75 to 78 degrees F. Click here to learn about aquarium temperature, aquarium thermometers, and aquarium heaters.

Feeding: Premium Fish Food Flakes and Pellets. When young and small feed them flakes or very small pellets. When bigger feed them small pellets. Click here to learn more about and shop online for premium fish foods.

Water Conditions: This fish seems to be tolerant of a wide range of water conditions. Probably a pH of about 7 with moderate hardness is best. Most water in the US has a higher pH and is hard but seems to be OK for this fish. So it's probably best NOT to adjust the pH or the hardness of the water. If you want to spawn them, try slowly diluting their water with a mixture of tap water and distilled water. Here in our facilities the water is hard and the pH is usually about 7.8. We ship them in this water. Click here for a lot more information about aquarium water conditions.

Aquarium Size: It is probably best to house these fish in at least a 20-gallon aquarium, when they're small. But eventually they'll need an aquarium with at least 30-gallons, and more is better. Keep at most one fish per gallon, when they're small, and one fish for each 3-gallons, when they're large.

Decor: They don't need gravel, and a layer of gravel more than 1/4" thick will usually fill with bits of uneaten food that will contaminate the water. Click here for more about aquarium gravel.

Live Plants are beautiful, improve the water quality, and are enjoyed by these Tetras.

Aquarium Filter: Bio-Wheel Filters are highly recommended. A Penguin 200B in an aquarium with 20 to 30-gallons of water is OK for these fish, but a 40 to 60-gallon aquarium with a Penguin 350B is better. Click here to learn more about aquarium filters.

The addition of Lava Rocks will keep nitrates in the ideal range. Click here to learn more about using Lava Rocks in aquariums.

Life Span: They can live for several years with good water and good food.

Gender: The males grow bigger with longer fins and become more colorful than the females. The females fill with eggs and become plumper, as they mature.

Breeding: They scatter their eggs on plants or special breeding mops made of nylon yarn. Click here for more information about breeding aquarium fish.

Popularity: This is a long time favorite and is still very popular.

Names: The scientific name is Phenacogrammus interruptus.

Variations: There is an albino variation that is slightly pink with red eyes.

We hope you've enjoyed reading these comments.
