Half of the fish’s body is covered in beautiful iridescent blue. Hints of gold, violet, and bright orange make up the rest of the body. The fins are considerably longer than most types of tetras, too. This creates an eye-catching display regardless of your tank’s decor.

When it comes to care, Congo Tetras are pretty easy-going. They prefer warm temperatures around 76 degrees Fahrenheit, neutral pH levels, and low hardness.

They willingly accept most foods. The fish do fine on dried commercial foods but also enjoy nutrient-rich live snacks every once in a wild. Be careful about live plants! Congo Tetras are notorious for nipping leaves.

Like most tetra species, Congos are peaceful and non-aggressive. They like to stick in groups. It helps them feel more confident and safe in their surroundings.
