Ember Tetra (Hyphessobrycon amandae)


The Ember Tetra, scientifically known as Hyphessobrycon amandae, is a petite, vividly colored fish that is widely appreciated for its fiery orange-red hue, which closely resembles glowing embers. Its compact size, coupled with its peaceful nature, makes it an excellent choice for both nano and community aquariums. Originating from the clear waters of Brazil, Ember Tetras exhibit a sparkling glow, especially when kept under subdued lighting, accentuating their fiery appearance.


  • Bright orange-red coloration resembling glowing embers
  • Compact size perfect for smaller setups
  • Peaceful disposition, making them suitable for community tanks
  • Thrives best in schools, displaying captivating synchronized swimming

How to Keep:

Ember Tetras prefer soft to moderately hard water with slightly acidic to neutral pH levels. A planted tank with dim lighting will enhance their coloration and mimic their natural habitat. They are shoaling fish, so it's ideal to keep them in groups of at least 6 or more, allowing them to display their natural behavior and vivid coloration prominently.
