A rarely seen and highly sought-after species of schooling tetra, the Costae or Blackline Tetra is found in the shallow reaches of the Rio Sao Francisco and its tributaries in Southern Brazil.

An extremely active species, they form large schools or shoals in the wild as a defense from predation. In the aquarium, their fast-moving nature and unique tail stripe pattern adds flash and movement to the middle and upper levels of the aquarium which has made them extremely popular with planted tank hobbyists and aquascapers.

A hardy species, they are tolerant of a wide range of water conditions but should be kept in a well-covered aquarium as they are likely to jump. As a shoaling species, they should be kept in larger groups, with 5 fish being the minimum

Origin: Aquacultured Asia

Locale: Rio Sao Francisco

Diet: Omnivore and micropredator, will readily accept most frozen or prepared foods

Adult Size: 2.5″

Recommended Tank Size: 30 gallons

Compatibility: Generally peaceful towards most tankmates, but their fast-moving nature might stress out shy or slow swimming tankmates
