Serpae Tetra is a usually peaceful, schooling fish that comes from the regions of South America. It can be a minor fin nipper, so other species with delicate fins are best kept separate. Receiving its name from its red/orange body with black markings behind the head and on dorsal and anal fins, the hardy Red Minor Serpae Tetra is great for the community aquarium.

Hiding spaces such as rocks, plants, and driftwood are recommended to give this fish a sense of security. Taller plants should be used to coincide with its mid-level swimming habits along with plenty of rock formed cave structures.
