Penguin Tetra

Penguin Tetra

Looks similar to the Black Neon Tetra, but a completely different species. Penguin Tetra are found in rivers and tributaries of South America. As a schooling fish it does best when housed in groups of five or more of the same species in a tank. As this fish is a mid to top level swimmer, it will not eat food off of the bottom of the tank.

These fish will remain in the open in a stunning display as long as there is a large amount of swimming space as well as a variety of hiding places. This species will look best in a tank with dark substrate and less intense lighting.
