Hemigrammus bleheri (Red nosed tetra, Rummy Nose Tetra)

A brightly coloured tetra that makes an excellent contrast to other characins such as neons and hatchetfish. Essentially silvery-white, it has a bold red patch on the head and black and white bars on the tail fin. Both sexes are brightly coloured, though the female is somewhat more stocky.

This is one tetra that does not do well in hard, alkaline water. Only keep in soft, slightly acid water, preferably filtered through peat or with blackwater extract added.


Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

A very peaceful species ideally suited to community tanks alongside fish such as cardinals, Corydoras, Apistogramma, hatchetfish, and discus. This species is, however, considered to be quite delicate and should only be kept in mature aquaria.

Only rarely bred in aquaria, partly because it must have very soft, slightly acid water to spawn, but also because the fry are very small and only accept tiny live foods such as infusorians. Scatters eggs on the substrate or on Java Moss, and the parents may eat the eggs. The eggs hatch after about 36 hours, and the fry are mobile within the next two to three days.
