"Enhance your aquarium with the Amber Tetra! Known for its captivating amber coloration, it adds warmth and beauty to any tank."

Detailed Description:

Overview:

  • The Amber Tetra, scientifically known as Hyphessobrycon amandae, is a small and peaceful freshwater fish cherished by aquarists for its unique amber-colored body and tranquil nature.
  • Originating from the clear, acidic waters of the Rio Purus basin in Brazil, this species is a relatively recent addition to the aquarium hobby but has quickly gained popularity for its striking appearance and ease of care.

Appearance:

  • The Amber Tetra features a distinctive amber or golden-brown body coloration, which intensifies when viewed under aquarium lighting.
  • Its streamlined body is adorned with a shimmering metallic sheen, adding to its allure and beauty.
  • Despite its small size, the Amber Tetra possesses a graceful swimming motion and adds a touch of elegance to any freshwater aquarium.

Water Conditions:

  • Optimal water temperature: 75-82°F (24-28°C).
  • pH range: 5.5-7.0.
  • Water hardness: 2-10 dGH.
  • Provide a well-filtered aquarium with gentle water flow and maintain stable water parameters to ensure the health and vitality of Amber Tetras.
  • Mimic their natural habitat by incorporating tannins, driftwood, and dried leaves to create a dark, acidic environment.

Tank Setup:

  • Amber Tetras thrive in a densely planted aquarium with plenty of open swimming space and subdued lighting.
  • Incorporate floating plants and dense vegetation to provide cover and create a sense of security for the fish.
  • Ensure the tank has a secure lid as Amber Tetras may jump if startled or stressed.

Tank Mates:

  • Amber Tetras are peaceful shoaling fish that should be kept in groups of six or more individuals.
  • Suitable tank mates include other small, peaceful fish species such as Rasboras, Tetras, Corydoras Catfish, and Dwarf Gouramis.
  • Avoid keeping them with aggressive or predatory species that may harass or prey on the Amber Tetras.

Feeding Habit:

  • Amber Tetras are omnivores and accept a variety of foods, including high-quality flake food, micro pellets, frozen or live foods such as bloodworms, brine shrimp, and daphnia.
  • Offer a varied diet to ensure nutritional diversity and promote optimal health and coloration.
  • Feed them small portions multiple times a day to prevent overeating and maintain water quality.

Care and Maintenance:

  • Regular maintenance is essential to ensure the well-being of Amber Tetras and maintain water quality.
  • Perform frequent water changes of 25% every week to remove waste and replenish essential nutrients.
  • Monitor water parameters using a reliable test kit and adjust as necessary to maintain stable conditions.
  • Keep an eye out for any signs of illness or stress, such as lethargy, loss of appetite, or abnormal behavior, and address any issues promptly.
