The Red Minor Serpae Tetra is a peaceful, omnivorous, schooling fish that comes from South America. The Red Minor Serpae gets it name from its red/orange body with black markings behind the head and on dorsal and anal fins. Red Minor Serpae Tetra is great for the community aquarium and is extremely hardy.
Hiding spaces such as rocks, plants, & driftwood are recommended to give this fish a sense of security. Tall plants should be used as this mid-level swimmer will feel more at home. Serpae Tetras will breed occasionally in an aquarium setting and a hospital or “breeding tank” may be necessary. Slightly acidic water is best for optimal breeding habits. After the eggs have been fertilized, removing the parents will be necessary to reduce the number of lost fry. Feed the fry baby brine shrimp or crushed flake food.
