Scientific Name: Aphyocharax nattereri


Endemic to river drainage systems in Paraguay, Paraná and Brazil
Dawn 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 - 7.5pH. Temperatures should range between 24-26°C. Growth Size 3.5cm 
Dawn 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.
Dawn Tetra are a community fish and are generally accepeted by a wide range of tank mates, keep in large groups to avoid fin nipping and avoid long finned species. Please see the compatability chart below for more information.
Females will exhibit a much deeper body, especially when carrying eggs. Can happily be bred in captivity, however care must be taken with eggs and fry as no parental care is provided.BKBA
