Axelrodia riesei – Ruby Tetra

Axelrodia riesei – Ruby Tetra is a peaceful schooling fish that should be kept in water that is not too hard, because in hard water he looses his colours. The aquarium should be planted on the sides and background. In the middle you should leave enough free swimming space. A dark substrate, peat-filtered soft water, and a dimmed light by using floating plants bring out the colors of the fish. This fish is rarely offered in stores.

Diet

You should give them small live food. Dry food is also accepted.

Breeding Axelrodia riesei – Ruby Tetra

I couldn’t find anything about breeding in the aquarium.
