The toucan tetra is a unique tetra not commonly seen for sale and can be highly sought after in the aquarium hobby. This tetra is ideal for small habitats due to its small size.
Fish should be provided lots of hiding places, natural leaf litter, driftwood, etc. These fish would be a great addition to tanks that have other micro-rasboras, small corydoras catfish, otocinclus, and other friendly tank mates.
These unique tetras will max out around 3/4 of an inch, with most reaching only 1/2 an inch.
The scientific name for the Toucan Tetra is: Tucanoichthys tucano
Our tetras feed on frozen foods such as daphnia, cyclopods and baby brine shrimp along with freshly hatched baby brine shrimp
Our Tank Parameters
Arrived beautifully packed, active and healthy. Gorgeous fish and doing great a week later!
I wanted unique nano fish for my planted shrimp tank, so ordered these Toucan tetras, as I have never seen these in a store.
They arrived quickly and all were alive, even the extras (thanks, Flip Aquatics!)
They are more beautiful than the website pics, with shiny golden eyes ,red around the head, and black stripe down the sides..outstanding! They are more active than my neon, but hang out with them in the mid tank.
I’ve been hunting for these little guys for over a year, looking everywhere I can think to. I finally got a notification from flip and ordered asap! They arrived in perfect condition, I lost 1 during quarantine but still broke even as flip always sends a “just in case” fish or two. They’re adorably tiny and perfect little school for my nano tank! Thank you!!
These fish arrived fast and safe! The heat pack was luke warm so I would recommend a longer hour heat pack just to be sure. It would be worth the extra cost!
