An albino form of the well-known Buenos Aires. The body is pale yellow, and the pelvic, anal, and tail fins bear red markings.

Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

A hardy, easy to keep tetra that has long been a favourite among aquarists. While it is completely peaceful, it does eat plants, and this has led to it falling out of fashion. A good choice for tanks with plastic plants or ornamented solely with wood and rocks.

Easy to breed; scatters eggs among plants, and once free swimming, the fry will eat finely ground flake food and newly hatched brine shrimp.

Family Group: Characins
Distribution Subtropical South America
Temperature 21-28C
Size 7 cm
Water Parameters Adaptable, but avoid very hard, alkaline conditions
Water PH 6.0-7.5

Useful sources of information:

For a well illustrated and detailed reference guide on this and many other fish, consider the Baensch Aquarium Atlases. Volume 1 contains all the common species, and later volumes cover more unusual species. You can buy these books here.
