Spotted Splashing Tetra (Copella Meinkeni)

Description

The Spotted Splashing Tetra, a captivating member of the aquarium community, adds a lively and dynamic presence to tanks worldwide. Known for its vibrant colors and distinctive behavior, this tetra species belongs to the Characidae family.

  1. Temperature: The Spotted Splashing Tetra thrives within a temperature range of 74°F to 80°F (23°C to 27°C). Maintaining a stable temperature within this range is crucial for their overall well-being.

  2. Minimum Size Tank: Provide a tank with a minimum capacity of 20 gallons (75 liters) to accommodate a group of Spotted Splashing Tetras. A larger tank allows them space to exhibit their natural behaviors and minimizes stress.

Feeding Habits: Spotted Splashing Tetras are omnivores with a diverse diet. They readily accept high-quality flake food, pellets, and enjoy live or frozen treats such as brine shrimp and daphnia. Offering a varied diet enhances their health and coloration.

Habitat Preference: In their natural habitat, Spotted Splashing Tetras are often found in areas with dense vegetation, preferring a well-planted aquarium. Driftwood and other hiding places contribute to their sense of security.

Water pH Level: Maintain a slightly acidic to neutral pH level, ranging from 6.5 to 7.5, to replicate the conditions of their native habitat.

Behavior: These tetras are known for their lively and active behavior. They exhibit energetic swimming patterns, especially during feeding and social interactions. Providing open spaces for swimming and adequate hiding spots creates an ideal environment.

Spotted Splashing Tetras are social fish that thrive in groups. Keeping them in a school of at least six individuals is recommended to ensure their well-being and bring out their natural shoaling behaviors.

Color and Other Details: As the name suggests, Spotted Splashing Tetras are characterized by distinctive spots on their bodies. These spots, combined with their sleek and streamlined appearance, contribute to their visual appeal. They may display vibrant colors, with hues ranging from silver to gold, depending on their mood and environmental conditions.

Spotted Splashing Tetras bring vibrancy and liveliness to a well-maintained aquarium. Ensuring a suitable environment with proper tank mates and a balanced diet will promote their health and showcase their striking colors.
