Emperor Tetra is a peaceful fish that can be housed in any community aquarium. Its fins are translucent and the tail has a unique look that will intrigue the beginner to the expert aquarist. Originally from South America, Emperor Tetra makes a great addition to the community aquarium.
Emperor Tetra can be in a house with soft water fish to brackish water fish. Plants, rocks, and driftwood help to enhance its natural habitat and provide hiding places.
Emperor Tetra will breed occasionally in an aquarium setting and a hospital or “breeding tank” will be necessary. Slightly acidic water is best for optimal breeding habits. After spawning, remove the parents to prevent them from eating their offspring.
