Yellow Phantom Tetra is one of the colorful, small species. The
peaceful dwarfs – they become only around 3 cm long – have blood red
caudal fins and a wonderful contrasting large black shoulder spot.
species originates from French Guyana, where it occurs in the rivers
Maroni and Oyapock. There are no exports from that country, so all
Yellow Phantoms kept in aquaria are bred ones. Currently we have very
colorful German bred ones in stock.
For our customers: the fish have code 267053 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
Lexicon: Megalamphodus: means “with spacious ways”; this refers to anatomical details. roseus: means “rosy colored”.
