AQUARIUM CARE: This gorgeous tetra likes a loosely planted tank, dark, but with some open water for swimming. Easy to keep and not fussy about food, a great addition to most community tanks. Not to be confused with the similar Nematobrycon palmeri, also sometimes referred to as the Emperor tetra.
BREEDING: Male Emperor tetras defend small territories in which they breed. Adult fish should be removed, and the fry fed on newly hatched artemia nauplii.
