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

Well planted aquariums are not only great looking, they are also very beneficial to the fish. They oxygenate the water, absorb nitrates, reduce algae and provide refuge for fry (and other timid species). Plants like Java fern, hornwort, Amazon sword, Vallisneria (eel grass), Cryptocoryne and Anubias can all do well in a typical home aquarium with the smallest amount of attention
