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.
