The Emperor Tetra is a nicely coloured fish which will do well in a planted community of other small peaceful fishes. However, they are known to fight and become troublesome, usually if kept in non-planted tanks. Good water conditions and a varied diet are essential for long term good health and colour. A planted envionment, or a darker tank with plenty of hiding spots is preferable. A few different colour forms are available, including a black variety, although the natural purple-black form is arguably the best looking. A hardy and long lived fish in the right environment
