The Black Phantom Tetra is a very peaceful, schooling fish that comes from the regions of Central Brazil. Receiving its name from its black translucent coloring, the hardy Black Phantom Tetra is great for any community aquarium. Males of the species will have a higher dorsal fin, and display a more brilliant coloration.

Hiding spaces such as rocks, plants, and driftwood are recommended to give this fish a sense of security. Taller plants should be used to coincide with its mid-level swimming habits along with plenty of rock formed cave structures.

Phantom Tetras will breed occasionally in an aquarium setting and a hospital or "breeding tank" will be necessary. Slightly acidic water is best for optimal breeding habits. After the eggs have been fertilized, removing the parents will be necessary to reduce the number of lost fry. Feed the fry baby brine shrimp or crushed flake food.

The Black Phantom Tetra will accept many small foods such as brine shrimp or daphnia, freeze-dried bloodworms and tubifex, micro pellet food, and a high quality flake food.
