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.
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.
Our Tank Parameters
I ordered 7 ember tetras that arrived quickly and very well packed. I was updated often so I could pick them up right away. They sent one extra in case one died, but a week in they are all healthy and active. They are a great tank buddy for my Betta, both getting along well with eachother. Will definitely purchase from this company again
ordered 5, got an extra, and they're all doing great! they've already started coloring up after three days :)
Great fish. Colorful and active
Received them beautifully packaged, and enjoying them! They are doing great!
The fish were very well packed and are now thriving in my aquarium! I definitely recommend ordering from Flip!
