The Diamond Tetra, also known as Brillantsalmler, Diamond Characin, Pittier's Tetra and Timanttitetra is native to South American inland waters. They are said to sparkle like a diamond with their silvery scales and orange accents.
These Tetras prefer a heavily planted tank and softer water on the acidic side. They are ideal fish to put in a community tank and prefer to school with an odd number of at least 3 Diamond Tetras, making them an attractive addition to your home aquarium.
Diamond Tetras will accept many small foods such as brine shrimp or daphnia, freeze-dried bloodworms and tubifex, micro pellet food, and a high quality flake food.
