Quick Overview

Penguin Tetra

Details

Penguin Tetras are a popular community fish with a distinctive swimming manner - usually positioned with their body tilted slightly upwards. An active, peaceful tetra, best kept in a school. All standard foods eagerly accepted. Penguins grow to about 5-6cm. 

Tetras are considered easy to keep in a community aquarium of at least 20L, with a pH of 5.07.0 and KH of 1.02.0. However, they will not tolerate dramatic changes to their environment. The Tetra can live 10 years or more with the proper conditions. They tend to be timid and, because of their small size, should not be kept with large or aggressive fish who may bully or simply eat them. 

Fish that mix well in an aquarium are other types of tetras, and other community fish that live well in an ideal Tetra water condition. Mid-level feeders, they are best kept in schools of five to eight or more, for the "shoaling" effect when they move around the tank. They shoal naturally in the wild and are thus happier, more brightly coloured, and more active when kept as a shoal as opposed to singly.
