A native species of the upper Amazin Basin around the 'Tres Fronteras' regions. An area where Brazil, Colombia and Peru join.
Bleeding Heart Tetra are a shoaling species, and are best kept in large numbers. For best results we recommend keeping at least 8 in a shoal - the more the happier they will be.

Ideally slightly acidic water conditions are provided between 6.5pH - 7pH however they will happily live in conditions ranging up to pH of 7.5 or higher. Temperatures should range between 24-26°C.

Bleeding Heart Tetra should be fed a variety of flake, frozen, freeze dried and live foods for a varied diet.  Being omnivores they will happily accept a wide range of foods. Bleeding Heart Tetra are peaceful community fish and are generally accepeted by a wide range of tank mates. Please see the compatability chart below for more information.
Males grow much larger than their female counterparts.  Showing brilliant colours and extended dorsals fins they can make a stunniny showcase.  As with all Tetra this species is an egg scatterer showing no after care.
