The Phantom Tetra is a colorful addition to any freshwater community aquarium. The striking color pattern of the semi-transparent red body is accented with darker markings in the fins. The schooling nature of the Phantom Tetra creates an impressive display when kept in a school of at least six or more individuals.
The Phantom Tetra is a member of the Characidae Family that is often confused with the similar Serpae Tetra. In the wild, these eye-catching tetras are found in the tributaries and rivers of Columbia, South America.
The ideal aquarium setup for the Phantom Tetra should include a variety of live plants, rocks and driftwood to recreate natural habitat and provide hiding spaces. Similar to other tetra species, the male Phantom Tetra will have a longer more pronounced dorsal fin than the plumper female.
