Ember Tetra - IN STORE ONLY
Very peaceful and will not compete well with very boisterous or much larger tankmates.
In a community it’s best kept with similarly-sized, peaceful characids, smaller callichthyid or loricariid catfishes and sedate surface-dwellers such as hatchetfishes.
In the aquarium it will accept dried foods of a suitable size but should also be offered daily meals of small live and frozen fare such as Artemia nauplii, Moina, grindal worm, etc.
Should ideally be kept in a heavily-planted set-up, preferably with a dark substrate.
Floating plants are a useful addition as are driftwood branches and dried leaf litter, the latter in particular driving establishment of microbe colonies as decomposition occurs.
