Feeding:Feed a predominantly vegetarian diet consisting on veggie flakes, pellets, and wafers. Treats of frozen brine shrimp, live brine shrimp, blood worms, and brown worms can be fed on occasion. A well varied diet is best.

Typical tank setup:Amazon biotope with a lot of hiding places which include rocks and bogwood/driftwood. Leporinus eat live plants, so a few live plants won’t do. They do well in planted aquariums, but a lot of plants are necessary to minimize the damage they do to them.

Compatibility

It is very common to find tetras with Corydoras as companions, as they are both quite peaceful and other tank mates like Guppies, other Tetras, Rasboras, Mollies & Platies.

Additional info

This tetra is generally very peaceful but they are sometimes prone to fin nipping on some of their tank mates. Keeping them in a school of 6 or more may help alleviate this problem.
