Offering Moenkhausia sanctaefilomenae (Red Eye Tetra).

The Red Eye Tetra, so named for its signature red eye against a silver scaled background these Tetra can grow to approximately 2.5 inches and do well in community set-ups. Aim to replicate their natural clear water rivers by decorating with wood, sandy, gravel substrate and an abundance of vegetation with regular water changes to maintain their health and wellbeing. Its an active tetra, where fin nipping can become a problem if kept in insufficient numbers. Keeping them in groups of 8 or more should help minimise this. They accept a wide variety of foods such as flake, dried and pellets though frozen or live supplementation can really help to maintain their vibrant sheen.
