Ember Tetra

The Ember Tetra is an absolute stunning nano fish with very bold orange and hints of red for color. They truly stand out in a planted aquarium. It is important to provide hiding places for these fish as they can get stressed out. We recommend rock and driftwood to create caves and crevices. 

Please Note: All fish shipments have a 100% Live Arrival Guarantee when shipping with UPS Overnight (1 Day) option. All other options void our Live Arrival Guarantee for fish. 

The ember Tetra will reach sizes of about 1.25 inches. They are pretty peaceful although we would not recommend keeping them with shrimp. They prefer small live foods so baby shrimp would become an easy target. 

The scientific name for the Ember Tetra is Hyphessobrycon amandae.

We feed our Ember Tetras a mix of frozen foods including daphnia, baby brine and cyclops. We occasionally feed them Northfin Veggie.

Beautiful and Healthy

They’re still a little shy, but my ember tetras all arrived alive and well, and they’re doing great in their new home! They were packaged with care, and I 1000% recommend springing for the cooling pack if you’re ordering during hot weather. These little guys had to make it to west-central Texas alive and it’s scorching here, so I’m convinced that the combination of A+ packaging and the cooling pack were what kept them alive for the journey.

Amber Tetra

I've placed several orders with FLIP Aquatics. This order as all the rest was perfect! My fish arrived very well protected, healthy and happy. Thanks FLIP!

Couldn't be Happier

I'll start with a thanks to Flip Aquatics for helping me out with some advice prior to even ordering.
And now, as the title says I am happily surprised with these little fish because UPS was a day late in delivering and they sat on my porch for two hours in 50 degree weather. When I unpacked the box the heat pack was exhausted and those bags were cold. I had two upside down laying on the bottom in one bag and one in the other. I thought for sure they were goners but within a minute of dripping they were all active and swimming. I have now had them in quarantine for two days and they are eating like little pigs and appear very healthy so far. Oh and I almost forgot, I ordered twelve and received fourteen, really cool bonus cause the more of these the merrier.
So I will say it again, I couldn't be happier, Awesome job Flip Aquatics you have a definite repeat customer here.
