Hyphessobrycon amapaensis

4. March 2009

One of the most beautiful tetras of South America is availble now in brillantly colored wild collected specimens. The Amapa tetra is an uncomparable eye-catcher for any well suited community tank for South American fishes. As usual, among these wild collected fishes were also specimens of other species, so-called by-catches. This gives us a good idea about the community of species the Amapa tetra lives in in the wild and also suggests perfect tankmates:

Marbled hatchetfish, Carnegiella strigata; Dwarf pencilfish, Nannostomus marginatus; Head-and-taillight tetra, Hemigrammus ocellifer.

Beside these species, however, also some less attractive species were among the Amapa tetras. We show them here anyway (please use button “Further pictures”).
