  Ask a Question

The Red Eye Tetra adds a sophisticated touch to the larger freshwater community aquarium. The distinguished color pattern of black and silver is accented with an eye-catching red marking above its eyes. The elegant Red Eye Tetra creates an impressive display when kept in a school of six or more individuals. A school of these metallic silverfish is sure to add dynamic energy and en masse, the signature “red eye” adds an unexpected touch of color. It also has a natural tolerance to a wide range of water parameters. This characteristic makes the Red Eye Tetra well suited for a variety of aquarium setups including the community aquarium. Unlike sensitive tetra species that need to be kept in soft water conditions, the hardy Red Eye Tetra is an excellent choice for new aquarists. Furthermore, the Red Eye Tetra is very peaceful and is compatible with other non-aggressive fish.
