Hemigrammus coeruleus (Coerulean Tetra)
This tetra usually reaches a maximum length of about 6-7cm, they are a larger schooling tetra.
This tetra is actually fairly similar to the well known glowlight tetra (Hemigrammus erythrozonus). During their times of ‘regular’ colouration they look wonderful, with both male and females featuring a neon pink line down their side.
During spawning they look spectacular, the males transform into such a deep ruby red that you would be forgiven for mistaking them for a different species altogether!
These fish originate from the lower Rio Negro river basin. Their native habitat consists a sand/silt bottom, bog wood, branches and some vegetation
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
Peaceful overall in nature, this tetra (like most) is an insectivore but also love to ingest bloodworms.

|Water Parameters||Prefers soft and slightly acidic water, but should adapt to most water conditions|
