Columbian Tetra or Hyphessobrycon columbianus
Columbian Tetra or Hyphessobrycon columbianus is a very good fish for larger scale community fish tanks. They are fast, elegant and will always attract attention with its blue tinted body and red fins. You can feed them Hikari Micro Pellets or Dennerle Complete Gourmet Menu and get the best colour out of them.

McMerwe comments: Columbian Tetra or Hyphessobrycon columbianus are perfect for any planted tank. They might nip their own species fins, but they are hardy and do well in most tanks. Very good looking fish that contributes to a community fish environment. [Rating: 5/5].
