Head and Tail Light Tetra

Originating from the rivers of South America, the Head and Tail Light Tetra has a plethora of coloration from head to tail. While the body has a silver tone to it, each fish has a light salmon hue behind the eyes and at the base of its tail. Also a schooling community fish, the Head and Tail Light Tetra does best in a group of six or more of the same species. Also known as the Beacon Fish, this fish prefers dim lighting as well as plant cover. Requiring many hiding places, this tetra also prefers ample amounts of swimming space. In addition, soft water is preferred, but not essential.
