Hyphessobrycon Epicharis

Description

Hyphessobrycon epicharis is a little fresh water fish from the Amérique du Sud.

  1. Temperature: Hyphessobrycon epicharis is a freshwater fish from South America. To replicate its natural habitat, maintain a temperature range between 72-82°F (22-28°C) in the aquarium.

  2. Minimum Tank Size: Given that the maximum size of Hyphessobrycon epicharis is around 3.3 cm, you can keep them in a smaller tank. A tank with a capacity of 10 gallons or more should be sufficient for a small group of these fish.

Feeding Habits: As with many tetras, Hyphessobrycon epicharis is likely an omnivorous species. Offer a balanced diet that includes high-quality flakes, pellets, and occasional live or frozen foods like brine shrimp or bloodworms.

Habitat Preference: Hyphessobrycon epicharis is benthopelagic, which means it occupies the bottom and midwater regions of the aquarium. Provide a well-decorated tank with plants, driftwood, and hiding places to mimic its natural environment.

Water pH Level: Aim for a slightly acidic to neutral pH level in the range of 6.0 to 7.5, reflecting the conditions of its native waters in the Upper Orinoco and upper Negro River basins.

Behavior: Tetras, including Hyphessobrycon species, often exhibit schooling behavior for safety and social interaction. Keep them in a group of six or more individuals to ensure they feel secure. This can also enhance their natural behaviors.

Color and Other Details: The specific coloration of Hyphessobrycon epicharis can vary, but tetras are generally known for their vibrant colors. Provide a well-lit tank to bring out the best colors in these fish.

It's essential to note that individual variations and preferences can exist even within the same species. Regular monitoring of the water parameters, observing the behavior of the fish, and adjusting care accordingly will contribute to their well-being. Always stay informed about any new research or findings regarding the specific needs of Hyphessobrycon epicharis to ensure the best possible care.
