Rummy Nose Tetra

Sale price£3.95


Rummy nose tetras are the elegant ambassadors of tranquillity in your tropical aquarium, gracing the water with their distinct red "nose" and serene demeanour. Originating from the clear, blackwater rivers of South America, these schooling fish bring a touch of sophistication to aquatic landscapes. Their slender bodies shimmer with a silver iridescence, and the vibrant red pattern on their nose intensifies when they feel at ease in their surroundings.

Creating an ideal habitat for rummy nose tetras involves replicating their natural environment. A well-planted aquarium with subdued lighting and dark substrate mimics the dimly lit waters they call home. These social fish thrive in groups, so maintaining a school of at least six individuals is essential for their well-being and to observe their characteristic tight-knit formations.

Careful attention to water parameters is crucial. Keep the temperature between 75-82°F (24-28°C) and maintain a slightly acidic to neutral pH. Regular water changes and efficient filtration contribute to a healthy aquatic ecosystem.

Rummy nose tetras are omnivores and readily accept high-quality flake or pellet foods. Supplement their diet with live or frozen treats like brine shrimp or bloodworms to enhance their coloration and overall vitality. With the right care, these graceful tetras will bring a sense of serenity and beauty to your tropical aquarium.
