The Black Phantom Tetra comes from upper Paraguay and central Brazil. It is a peaceful, schooling fish and a great choice for a community aquarium. The Black Phantom Tetra gets its name from its black translucent appearance, though the males display brilliant colors. If you add these fish to your aquarium you may even get the chance to observe a “mock fight” between two males. No one gets hurt, and the event can be fun to watch.
