Phoenix Tetra (Hemigrammus filamentosus)


The Phoenix Tetra is a beautifully radiant species with a fiery play of colors, reflecting hues of orange, red, and sometimes a shimmering blue, reminiscent of the mythical Phoenix bird. Their agile movements and active nature make them a captivating sight in a community tank.

Special Note:

Our collection of Phoenix Tetras has been through rigorous quarantine procedures for over 2 months. They are now well-acclimated to tap water, with complete and vibrant finnage, embodying excellent health and fullness in body shape.


  • Breathtaking fiery coloration
  • Active swimmers, adding dynamism to aquariums
  • Suitable for community tanks with peaceful inhabitants

How to Keep:

Phoenix Tetras prefer tanks with a mix of open swimming spaces and densely planted areas. Their colors intensify with a darker substrate and subdued lighting. While they're not particularly finicky eaters, a diet of high-quality flake food, combined with occasional live or frozen treats, ensures their optimal health. Keeping them in schools of 6 or more amplifies their natural behavior and beauty.
