Blue Emperor Tetras are a shoaling species, and are best kept in large numbers. For best results we recommend keeping at least 6 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. Growth Size 3.5 c m  Blue Emperors 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. Blue Emperor 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.
Females have a stockier body shape and sport a redish adipose fin, whereas males show the striking blue colouration.  This species is readily spawned in captivity, but like many Tetras shows no parental aftercare.
