Description

Black Phantom Tetra

The Black Phantom Tetra comes from upper Paraguay and central Brazil. It is a peaceful, schooling fish and a great choice for a community aquarium. The Black Phantom Tetra gets its name from its black translucent appearance, though the males display brilliant colors. Two males together may upon occassion 'dance' with eachother, or look like they are fighting, but this is a harmless part of their natural behaviour.

The Black Phantom Tetra is quite unusual looking. They live best in planted tanks with loose leaves on the bottom to create a more natural aquarium.

Black Phantoms make a stunning contrast fish when paired with their red-hued cousins such as the Red Phantom, Jewel, or Serpae tetra.
