Red Blue Columbian Tetra

The Red blue Colombian tetra goes by many names including Colombian tetra, blue red Colombian tetra, red blue Colombian tetra, red tail mirror blue tetra, and the scientific name Hyphessobrycon columbianus. This species of tetra gets its name from the location it is found and the bright red tail and body color. It is a very peaceful tetra perfect for a community fish tank, They should be kept in groups of 6 or more.

Tank Requirements

These freshwater aquarium tetras will max out in size around 3 inches and should be kept in groups of 6 or more. They can be kept in a tank as small as 20 long. In a bigger tank, a larger school is preferred and quite mesmerizing to watch. The Colombian Tetra originates from the Rio Acandi, near the east coast of Colombia. Their native river habitat has a sandy substrate and dense plants along the edges of the river. The tropical water is warm (72-80° F) and generally soft and acidic. These fish are tank-raised and quite adaptable to most water chemistry.


These Tetras are omnivorous and will eat a variety of foods. Good Quality food like Dr. Bassleer Biofish Food, either pellets or flake is a great choice. Most high-quality food will be fine. At Michael's Fish Room, we only feed Dr. Bassleer pellet or flake food or live baby brine shrimp. These fish are bold and have been seen taking food from larger fish, but are not aggressive. Take a look at other Corys for sale at Michaels Fish Room here. Corydoras do best in a group of 6 or more. They are great for the community fish tank as they are peaceful and will help keep the bottom clean. They do well with livebearers, plecos, tetras, and most other peaceful fish.  The fish you receive are captive-breed and fasted for forty-eight hours before shipment.
