Red Phantom TetraHyphessobrycon sweglesi
The Red Phantom Tetra is a very attractive and peaceful small shoaling fish that is well suited to a community. Although they may tolerate harder water, for long term health and colour they are best kept in soft-medium water with a pH of around 6-7. Keep in groups, ideally in aquariums with hiding spots amongst plants and with other small peaceful fish. May occasionally nip at extravagantly finned fish.
