Serpae Tetra

The Serpae Tetra or Hyphessobrycon callistus is a great community freshwater aquarium fish due to its peaceful temperament. This type of fish is fairly easy to care for in a smaller tank. This should be kept in schools of 6 or more or they can become slightly aggressive and are known to nip each others fins. They feed on flakes, brine shrimp and some pellet food too. Their striking red, orange and black coloration makes them stand out from the crowd. These fish can only grow to about 1-1/2" but can live up to 8 years old. They should be kept at temperatures of 70 to 82 degrees. This fish is also known as the Red Minor Serpae Tetra or Jewel Tetra.
