But that’s not what makes the fish special. It’s the fins that stand out. As their name would imply, the Bloodfin Tetra has bright red fins. The color is most concentrated on the tailfin, the anal fin, and the dorsal fin. You might see some splashes of red on the pelvic fins, too.

The Bloodfin Tetra is endemic to the Parańa River Basin in South America. Thus, they prefer warmer waters around 70 degrees.

The fish are tolerant of a wide range of conditions, making them an excellent choice for newcomers. That said, they still require stable waters to truly thrive.
