Where to buy

Sold out at all stores.
Serpae tetras are small schooling fishes with a flame or reddish-brown hue. They should be kept in schools of at least 6 or more.

Keep reading for some interesting facts about these alluring, energetic fishes!

Personality traits
While serpae tetras are known to be relatively peaceful fishes, they may nip the fins of other fishes during feeding time. Thus, you should place food at different locations throughout the tank.

Serpae tetras should also not be kept with fishes that have long fins such as Betta fishes.

Additionally, they are sensitive to fluctuations in water parameters, so owners should avoid introducing them to a newly set-up tank that has yet to be cycled through.

Serpae tetras enjoy having a large aquarium to swim in, so sufficient space should be provided for them. Aquatic plants should also be added to your tank to give these fishes a safe hiding spot!
