Rummy Nose Tetra 3-4cm

Cooranbong Aquatics


Nothing adds more art and life to the aquarium than a school of gorgeous Rummy Nose Tetras.

The Rummy Nose Tetra gets its name from the striking red blush that covers its little face and makes it recognizable. But the beauty doesn't end there as its body boasts a shiny, silvery nature while white and black stripes on its tail finish a strikingly beautiful work of art on the body of a tiny little fish. They also love to swim in schools with a bunch of other specie mates which makes for a breathtaking sight.

Rummy Nose Tetras are generally friendly and social and like to live with other fishes. However, it is advised to not keep them with aggressive, larger species. They are easy to look after as they are peace loving omnivores that prefer dense plantation.
