As with most Tetras, Von Rios are schooling nano fish originating in South American rivers. Sometimes called "Flame Tetras", Von Rios are most at home when their environment replicates the dark, tannin- filled water they originate from. Add leaves, driftwood, and live plants to replicate this. Excellent for black-water setups!

This species (Hyphessobrycon flammeus) works well with most peaceful community fish. While larger dwarf shrimp are fine, baby shrimp could be considered food!

These display the best coloring and behavior while in groups of 6+, and will grow to a maximum of 2 inches. They must be kept in schools of at least 3 or more, else they begin to behave erratically and retreat into hiding. When selecting tankmates, be sure to select other docile and calm community species, otherwise your tetras could become the subject of fish bullying!

They are peaceful but absolutely love tiny live food such as brine shrimp, Artemia, and other micro fauna. As they are mostly top and middle water column feeders, do be sure to give them slow-sinking or floating food. They generally don't like to dig around in the substrate, and spend very little time at the bottom.

Your Tetras will be young, without full adult coloration, and and about a 1" long.
