Our Pictures

This website has lots of pictures of the fish that we offer for sale. Will the fish you get look like the fish in our pictures?

No! This is like buying a kitten or a puppy, that will change as it grows and matures.

Click here to read more about our fish.

We stock and ship fish that are the ideal size to ship.

Not so small that they will not do well when shipped.

Yet not so big that they will have trouble adjusting to a new home.

The fish in almost all of our pictures were young fish like the ones we ship that we raised up, and you can too!

Comments: This is a Premium Pet Fish, and we rarely see Premium Tetras like this one in any of the live fish 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 southwestern part of the Amazon Rainforest in South America, but this fish was spawned and raised on a famous fish farm, and these Tetras now live in many aquariums throughout most of the world.

Maximum Size: This fish can grow to be about 0.75" long including the tail.

Behaviors: These guys are active and quarrel a bit with each other but don't do much harm.

Compatibility: Some recommended tank mates include, small fish like Guppies, Platys, Corydoras Catfish, Honey Gouramis, etc. 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. It's probably best to crush the flakes into a powder just before feeding these fish.  Or put a teaspoon of flakes into a plastic bag, let most of the air out of the bag, seal the bag with a rubber band, then massage the flakes through the bag, until the flakes become a powder, then feed the powder to small fish. Be sure to seal the bag between feeding, so the powder will remain fresh. 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 6.5 with very little hardness is best. Most water in the US seems to be OK, so it's probably best NOT to adjust the pH or the hardness of the 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's probably best to house these fish in at least a 15-gallon tank, but more is better, because they quarrel with each other a bit. Keep at most one fish per gallon. This very small fish is a candidate for so-called nano-aquariums, which are very small aquariums.

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 100 in an aquarium with 15 to 20-gallons of water is just about right for these fish. 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'll live for several years with good water and good food. DrTom had several that lived with him for more than 10-years.

Gender: The females fill with eggs and become plumper, as they mature.

Breeding: Tetras scatter their eggs on plants or special breeding mops made of nylon yarn.

Popularity: This fish is rather new to aquariums, but has become popular, especially in small and nano aquariums.

Names: The scientific name is Hyphessobrycon amandae.

Variations: We haven't seen any.

We hope you've enjoyed reading these comments.
