Scientific Name: Moenkhausia sanctaefilomenae

A very robust breed and ideal for beginners.  Care should be taken as they get larger as they can have a tendency to nip trailing fins
Growth Size 7 cm 
Widespread origins from Paraguay, Brazil and Argentina although almost all stock is captive bred in the aquatics industry
Red Eye 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.

Red Eye 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. Red Eye 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. 
Much like other Tetra females appear rounder and full of body when carrying eggs.  They will proceed to scatter amongst fine leaved plants during breeding.  However care must be taken with any eggs or fry as adults may view them as a food source after breeding.
