Rummy Nose TetraHemigrammus bleheri
The Rummy Nose Tetra is a popular choice for aquariums due to its striking red head colour and definitive horizontal tail fin stripes. The fish is peaceful and can be kept with other peaceful species and a few larger peaceful fish. Provide plenty of hiding spots amongst vegetation, keep in groups, and avoid hard water. Although the fish may adapt to harder water, their colours will not intensify and their life span may be reduced. An ideal fish for a planted softwater community.
