Your live fish may not match the image shown due to natural variations in each species. Each companion animal is different in shape, color, and personality.
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.
