The Penguin Tetra comes from the rivers of South America. They sport a unique black stripe that starts just behind the eye and travels the length of the body down through their tail fin. Penguin Tetras make a great addition to any community aquarium.

Penguin Tetras really shine when kept in groups of six or more and make a great schooling fish. Keep driftwood and live plants in their aquarium to optimize natural behavior.

By providing this tetra with a well rounded diet of micro pellets/flakes and a variety of frozen foods, such as daphnia and brine shrimp will ensure its ongoing health.
