Nematobrycon palmeri wild

12. August 2014

emperor tetra (Nematobrycon palmeri) belongs for decades already to the
most beloved species of tetra at all. This is due to its great beauty
and interesting behaviour. The species is available the whole year
through as bred ones.

collected ones, on the other hand, are available only seasonally. We
recently obtained once more a good shipment of these beautiful animals
from Colombia.

Wild collected and bred emperor tetras differ – as
it is the case in most species of tetra – mainly in respect to the
figure. Wild collected ones are much more gracile than bred ones for the
food in the wild is by far not that opulent as it is usually in
aquaria. In respect of coloration one can say that there is no
difference between wild and bred ones: both are very beautiful!
