Specifications

Overview

The Bleeding Heart Tetra gets its name from the markings on its body. The blushing red near the gills gives this South American fish a bleeding heart look.

Perfect for the community aquarium, this hardy tetra will be a great choice for the beginner to the expert aquarist. A planted tank of at least 50 litres will be the ideal environment for this tetra.

Rocks and driftwood help mirror its natural habitat and will help to reduce stress on the fish. The Bleeding Heart Tetra does best will soft slightly acidic water with high filtration.

The Bleeding Heart Tetra will breed occasionally in an aquarium setting and a hospital or breeding tank will be necessary. Slightly acidic water is best for optimal breeding habits.

After the eggs are laid removing the parents will be necessary to reduce the number of lost fry. The Bleeding Heart Tetra will accept many small foods such as brine shrimp or daphnia, freeze-dried bloodworms and tubifex, micro pellet food, and a high quality flake food.
