Bright red eyes and a peaceful active nature make the Lampeye an ideal community fish. They like plenty of open swimming space, tending to school in the top half of the aquarium. They also grow slightly larger than most of the more commonly kept tetras, reaching 6-7cm.
Tetras are considered easy to keep in a community aquarium of at least 20L, with a pH of 5.07.0 and KH of 1.02.0. However, they will not tolerate dramatic changes to their environment. The Tetra can live 10 years or more with the proper conditions. They tend to be timid and, because of their small size, should not be kept with large or aggressive fish who may bully or simply eat them.
