The red-eye tetra adds a touch of glamour to a freshwater community aquarium. Their metallic look, dynamic energy, and signature red-eye with its pop of color combine to create an elegant display when kept in a school of six or more. This fish is a good choice as a beginner fish. Water conditions fluctuate much in its natural habitat, so this fish can tolerate a wide range of differences and changes. The red-eye tetra is a relatively larger tetra and should ideally be housed in a 20-gallon or larger aquarium.
