The Red Phantom
tetra (Hyphessobrycon, formerly Megalamphodus, sweglesi) is a very
popular aquarium fish. Only recently we could present to you the bred
albino sport (http://www.aquariumglaser.de/en/news/Megalamphodus_sweglesi_Albino_en/) and the wild variety “rubra” (http://www.aquariumglaser.de/en/fish-archive/tetras-en/hyphessobrycon-hemigrammus-moenkhausia-en/Megalamphodus_en/). The beautiful tetra is available wild collected from Colombia and as bred ones (see http://www.aquariumglaser.de/en/fish-archive/tetras-en/hyphessobrycon-hemigrammus-moenkhausia-en/Red_Phantom_tetra_Hyphessobrycon_sweglesi_en/).
In respect of coloration both do not differ much, but the sizes are
astonishing different: adult wild ones are always much smaller than
their aquarium-bred cousins!
our customers: the fish have code 267102 (wild) and 267204 (bred,
currently we have lg-xlg in stock!) on our stocklist. Please note that
we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
