Ruby Tetras

The tetras arrived a day late because of a delay with UPS and unfortunately, one of the tetras was dead on arrival, but there were six total, so I did get five healthy little tetras! They were quite spooked at first but I followed the directions and they’ve acclimated quite well and like to hang out with my ember tetras in the tank. They’re eating well and gaining their color back, overall I’m very pleased with my purchase and will definitely be buying from flip aquatics again!

Beautiful shy fish

Beautiful nano fish. Perfect for a cave scape. They sit still more than the other fish and you really get a good look at them. They are a little shy.

Adorable!

Very happy with the delivery. Fish and snails arrived perfectly. I like the fact that you ship the snails in water. Less stress on them.

My first experience with the breather bags...very interesting.

The Ruby tetras are so tiny and cute. They are getting along very well with my Embers.

Thank you!
I will definitely order from you guys again...Mary K

Wonderful Fish!

My Ruby Tetras arrived quickly, safely and were packed extremely well. I drip acclimated them upon arrival and then added them to my aquarium. They colored up very quickly after exploring their new home and have been thriving ever since! They're gorgeous little fish and Flip Aquatics always does a great job.
