Ember tetra (Hyphessobrycon amandae) is one of the smallest tetra fishes kept in tanks. Ember tetra has become a popular nano tanks dweller due to its size, good temper and its simplicity as for tank conditions.
The fish inhabits in Brazil, in Araguaia River basin and in its tributary Rio das Mortes river. Typically the fish inhabits in slow waters of forested streams and tributaries with thick-set water plants.
In the wild ember tetra dwells in soft, acidic water, however the fish that grew in a tank can adapt to various water parameters. The recommended tank water temperature is 23–29 C (73–84 F), pH 6.5-7.5.
