Sale price£2.95


The Rosy Tetra, a delightful addition to tropical aquariums, showcases a charming blend of elegance and peaceful demeanour. Originating from South America, these tetras are characterized by their soft pink or rosy coloration, which becomes more vibrant when they are comfortable and well-cared for in an aquarium setting. Their small size and gentle nature make them excellent companions for community tanks.

Creating an ideal habitat for Rosy Tetras involves a well-planted aquarium with subdued lighting and a dark substrate to enhance their colours. These fish thrive in groups, so it's recommended to keep them in schools of at least six individuals to promote natural schooling behaviour and reduce stress.

Maintaining suitable water conditions is crucial for the well-being of Rosy Tetras. Keep the temperature between 72-78°F (22-26°C) and maintain a slightly acidic to neutral pH. Regular water changes and efficient filtration help maintain water quality and ensure a healthy environment for these tetras.

Rosy Tetras are omnivores and accept a variety of high-quality flake, pellet, and small-sized foods. Supplement their diet with live or frozen treats like brine shrimp or bloodworms to provide essential nutrients and enhance their overall health.

With their gentle beauty and peaceful disposition, Rosy Tetras bring a sense of tranquillity and elegance to tropical aquariums, making them a favourite among aquarists seeking a harmonious and visually pleasing community tank.
