Scientific Name

Hyphessobrycon Bentosi

The Ornate Tetra is a deep-bodied fish with a shape typical of some of the larger tetras, such as the Bleeding Heart Tetra. This fish will generally reach about 2 inches (5 cm) in the home aquarium though it will occasionally reach up to 3 inches (7.5 cm). It has a lifespan of about 3 to 5 years.

Its coloration and appearance are very similar to its close relative, the Rosy Tetra, with the differences being quite subtle. Both fish have a pink-to-deep-salmon body color, though the Ornate Tetra will often appear more transparent. Both species also have dark red markings on their fins. The Ornate Tetra has a faint grayish ‘shoulder patch,’ which is absent on the Rosy Tetra.
