product highlights

Von Rio Flame Tetras are attractive, hardy fish that come in a variety of colorations and color patterns. Tetras are an active, peaceful, schooling fish that mix well with other community fish. They prefer to swim in schools of five or more, and can share their aquarium with other community danios, rasboras, catfish and less aggressive barbs and gouramis. Instead of plants, tetras eat aquatic crustaceans, worms and aquatic insect larvae. Vary their diet by including frozen or freeze-dried bloodworms, tubifex worms and other small worms, mosquito larvae and daphnia. To create a beautiful environment, be sure to add some top and bottom swimmers as well. Ask a PetSmart associate to help you choose.
