We would class these as an easy level of care
Where in the world are they from?
Found in south western Brazil and Rio de Janeiro
Flame 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.
What water conditions do they require?
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. Temperatures should range between 24-26°C. Growth Size 2.5 cm 
Flame 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.
Flame 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 tend to be more robust, but they require very soft acidic water to breed.  As with all other Tetra they will scatter their eggs over fine plants and care must be taken with young to make sure adults to not interfere.
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.
