The Buenos Aires tetra is extremely popular due to its hardiness and ease of care. These fish were once sold in large numbers, but due to their propensity for eating aquarium plants, they have become less popular over the years. Specimens are mostly captive-bred from commercial fish farms in Florida.
The Buenos Aires Tetra is a great eater and you should offer them smaller fish foods including flakes, frozen, freeze dried and live foods.
