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.

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

What fish are good community fish? There is no absolute answer to this, but in general a community tank should contain only species that will tolerate each others behaviour, are approximately the same size, eat the same foods, and accept the same water conditions. Hardy tank bred fish that have adapted somewhat to local water conditions, and have no special dietary requirements usually make good candidates
