Food and feeding

Buenos aires tetras will accept all foods; they do however need vegetable matter in their diet. This can be provided with blanched Romaine lettuce or zucchini.

Origin

Buenos aires tetras are to be found in Brazil and Paraguay.

Sexing

Females tend to be plumper than the males but with less coloration.

Breeding

A breeding tank with fine leaved plants should be used for breeding purposes. They will scatter the eggs over the plants, at this stage the parents should be removed or they will eat the eggs. The eggs should hatch after 24 hours and the fry will be free swimmers after 2-3 days.

Lifespan

It is believed that their natural lifespan is 5-7 years; this has yet to be proven.

Short description

Hyphessobrycon anisitsi are tolerant of different water conditions; their biggest drawback is that they love to eat live plants in the aquarium. These will grow larger than some tetras. They should only be kept with tank mates of a similar size.
