The Diamond Tetra is robust and happily has a range of other species it will cohabit with, be cautious of species with long fins as they have a tendency to nip when get in small groups..
Diamond 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 6 cm Diamond 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. Diamond 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.  Males will exhibit a greater reflection on the scales. Can happily be bred in captivity, however care must be taken with eggs and fry as no parental care is provided.
