Scientific name: Aphyocharax anisitsi

The Bloodfin Tetra is an excellent community species that grows to approximately two inches in length. Like most tetras, they are most comfortable in a group of six or more. A water temperature from 68º to 78º Fahrenheit is fine, but the fish show better color at the higher end of the range. They are not fussy about water chemistry, doing well with a pH of 6.0 to 8.0 in soft to relatively hard water. They will eat all flake and freeze-dried foods.

In the wild, Bloodfin Tetras normally feed on tiny invertebrates found in surface waters. The female is the larger of the species. Although normally quite docile, they become rather active during courtship, sometimes even leaping out of the water.
