The Glass Bloodfin Tetra comes from South America in Argentina, Rio Parana. They are found in streams, rivers, and tributaries, preferring shaded areas with floating and overhanging vegetation. They are schooling fish and inhabit the upper and middle layers of the water, feeding on worms, small insects, and crustaceans. The Bloodfin Tetra is a slim-bodied species of tetra. This fish will generally reach just under  5.5 cm. It is quite a long-lived fish with a general lifespan of about 5 to 8 years, yet it can live over 10 years in a well-maintained habitat. Its body colors range from beige-orange to silver, picking up some flashy neon highlights. The Glass Bloodfin Tetra’s most distinguishing characteristic, from which it gets its name, is the bright red color at the base of its anal fin and on the lower half of the tail fin. Glass Bloodfin Tetras are very undemanding in general. But because they are very active swimmers, they should be kept in a tank at least 60cm long and ideally 60 liters or more. Additionally, the tank should be securely covered as these fish are skilled jumpers and will probably do so if given the opportunity.
