The Ember tetra is one of the smallest tetras. They are a hardy little fish with lovely colouration that contrasts beautifully with the plants in a community aquarium. They are also a perfect company for many shrimps etc. in smaller aquaria.
It is a school fish, like most Tetra, and should be kept in a group of 6 or more. If in a group, it can be bold and active, whilst remaining peaceful with its tank mates.
