Flame Tetra (Hyphessobrycon Flammeus)

Description

 

The Flame Tetra (Hyphessobrycon flammeus) is a vibrant and popular freshwater fish species among aquarists. Here are the key points regarding its temperature requirements and the minimum tank size it needs:

  1. Temperature: Flame Tetras prefer a relatively warm environment. Maintaining the water temperature between 75°F and 82°F (24°C to 28°C) is optimal for their well-being. Consistent temperature regulation is crucial for keeping these fish healthy and vibrant.

  2. Minimum Tank Size: Flame Tetras are relatively small fish, but they still require sufficient space to thrive. For a small group of Flame Tetras, it is recommended to have a tank size of at least 10 to 15 gallons (38 to 57 liters). However, providing more space is always beneficial, as it allows for better swimming room and helps maintain better water quality.

Type and Details: The Flame Tetra is known for its stunning red coloration, which makes it a popular choice for aquarists looking to add some vibrant hues to their tanks. They are peaceful and generally easy to care for, making them suitable for community tanks with other small, non-aggressive fish species.

When setting up an aquarium for Flame Tetras, it is important to consider the following factors:

  • Water Quality: Maintain good water quality with regular water changes and proper filtration to ensure the well-being of the fish.
  • Tank Decoration: Provide plants and driftwood to create a natural environment and offer hiding spots for the Flame Tetras.
  • Diet: They are omnivores and will readily accept a variety of high-quality flake foods, as well as live or frozen foods such as bloodworms, daphnia, and brine shrimp.

Ensuring appropriate tank conditions, diet, and companions will help to keep Flame Tetras healthy and showcase their vibrant colors in the aquarium.
