Ruby Tetra

Product Description

The Ruby Tetra is an absolute stunning nano fish with hints of reddish orange 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 Ruby Tetra will reach sizes of about 1 inch. 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 Ruby Tetra is Axelrodia riesei.

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

These tetras came in healthy as usual from flip and are a great addition to my tetra tank

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.

Ruby Tetra, excellent specimens!

These are pretty hard to find. I was absolutely impressed with the group of fish I received. They were all very healthy, well fed, and showed no signs of stress or potential issues. Within a a day or two, they started to color up in the tail section that has the bi-color, diamond shaped spot as well as the rest of their bodies. They're a curious playful little fish and are doing well in their new surroundings. They're young so they're on the small side so I recommend a small nutritious food like daphnia. Mine love it! I'm ready to order more and give them their own Nano tank habitat. Excellent specimen. Thanks Amanda for the packaging, to Rob and the rest of the Flip Aquatics family!
