The Head and Tail Light Tetra originate from the tributaries and rivers of South America and make a wonderful addition to any community aquarium.  This is an easy, peaceful, schooling fish to keep.  Their body is mostly transparent in color with the head and abdomen having a silver to gold coloration.  These fish have a pinkish spot both on the base of the tail, and just behind the eyes, which gives them their name.

Head and Tail Light Tetras can be housed in an aquarium with other soft water fish.  Tetras are a schooling fish that work well in groups of six or more fish of the same species.  Live plants a must for best results.  Rocks and driftwood will also help to enhance its natural habitat and provide hiding spaces.
