Yellow Phantom Tetra Profile
For those of you who like your tetras small and peaceful this is the fish for you.
First discovered in 1978, they have become more popular over the last few years.
Hyphessobrycon Roseus; gets a little over 1" males smaller. Keep at a 73-81 F, prefers softer acitric water but thrives in a community setting as long as the fish arent to big. Somewhat easier than Red Phantoms but a little harder than Black Phantoms. Keep over a dark substrade in a well planted aquarium with free swimming spaces. They eat almost anything but you should feed them bloodworms, brine shrimp ect to very there diet.
I've found they school tighter than thier more well known cousins but nothing like Rummynoses if you expect that type of schooling. They have fast become one of my favorite Tetras. A wonderful contrast to Neons and Cardinals.
