The Bloodfin Tetra is an excellent hardy aquarium fish and under the right conditions can be considered quite colourful. When seen for sale the fish is often dull and silvery with only a hint of red. Once established however, the red colour develops and a group of these fish can look quite attractive. The fish will spend much of its time at the surface if suitable vegetation is available for hiding amongst. Taller plants such as Vallisneria are ideal around the edges of the aquarium. Bloodfins are peaceful shoaling fish and best kept in larger groups with peaceful tankmates. Although naturally from hard water they will adapt to soft conditions. Can be kept in cooler water without harm, although the fishes colour may be less intense.
