Offering Hyphessobrycon megalopterus (Black Phantom Tetra).

The Black Phantom Tetra is a small fish of approximately 2 inch maximum size, from South America. Characterised by its silvery colouration with black fins and black spot on its body, they do well in shoals of 12 or more. They will readily accept a wide variety of foods such as flake, pellet, dried, live and/or frozen all of which help to maintain their health and vibrancy. It does well in community and or planted set-ups, being peaceful with tank mates. In breeding, males will have mock battles but this shouldn’t affect other species. Avoid housing with aggressive, predatory fish like cichlids.
