Colombian Red FinHyphessobrycon columbianus
The Colombian Red Fin is a relative new fish to the hobby, having only been available in the last few years. Despite this, it is now a popular and readily available fish. As with many other similar large tetras, these are shoaling fish suited to a robust community. Softer water is preffered and the fish may not show full colour or health if kept in hard water conditions. Planted tanks or tanks with plenty of hiding spots are also preferred. Can be nippy with long finned species and are known to squabble amongst each other.
