Strikingly Elegant Addition to Your Aquarium

The Yellow Phantom Tetra (Hyphessobrycon roseus) is a remarkable and elegant tetra species that adds both beauty and hardiness to any community aquarium, particularly planted setups. With its captivating appearance and peaceful demeanor, this tetra stands out as a stunning addition to any aquatic environment.

The Yellow Phantom Tetra boasts a vibrant yellow coloration, making it a striking presence in any aquarium. Its unique hue adds a pop of brightness to your tank, creating an eye-catching focal point. Whether in a school or as solitary individuals, these tetras bring elegance and charm to your aquatic landscape.

These tetras typically occupy the middle and upper levels of the water column, although they may explore various levels of the tank. They are compatible with other peaceful, small fish species and can coexist harmoniously in community setups. However, it's advisable to keep them in schools of six or more to ensure their well-being and social behavior.

Tank-bred Yellow Phantom Tetras are adaptable to a range of water conditions, but they thrive best in soft, acidic water reminiscent of their natural habitat. Clean water with ample hiding spots and vegetation enhances their coloration and overall health, particularly in planted aquariums.

Feeding the Yellow Phantom Tetra is straightforward, as they readily accept a varied diet of omnivorous foods. High-quality flake or pellet food, supplemented with live or frozen treats, ensures their nutritional needs are met and promotes vibrant coloration.

    Shipping Schedule for this service

    UPS 1 Day: Monday through Thursday

    Current Handling Time:

    1-9 business days

    Here at Aquatic Arts, we consider the welfare of the live animals we are shipping to be of the foremost importance. This process is much more involved than simply creating a shipping label and affixing it to a box. Depending on the order, it takes from 4 to 7 people to complete this process properly. We check the weather conditions here where they fly out of the Indianapolis UPS facility and the destination for each shipment. We start early each morning and go through a multi-step process to have the day's shipments prepared in time for the UPS pickup. The volume of orders in our system also affects the processing time. Therefore our stated handling time is 1-9 business days. 

    Shipping Rate

    Pricing is by size of package needed to fill entire order and distance it must travel. It will be calculated at checkout.
