Buenos Aires Tetra or Hyphessobrycon anisitsi
*Please note: For the safety of the livestock, we only ship livestock Monday – Wednesday. Please plan accordingly. We mainly sell juvenile livestock, but adults will be sent if available. We also do not sex livestock for any client, we will send a mix if available (this is to make it fair for everybody). This is company policy. PLEASE DO NOT ORDER IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY RECEIVING ONLY MALES OR ONLY FEMALES OR JUVENILE FISH.

Note: A group of at least 8-10 Buenos Aires Tetra or Hyphessobrycon anisitsi should be considered the minimum requirement since this increases the likelihood that the fish will be distracted by each other rather than their tankmates but will result in a more effective, natural-looking display. Males will also show better colouration in the presence of conspecific rivals.
