Golden Tetra is small Amazonian species is an excellent fish for a community aquarium thanks to it’s small size and peaceful nature. As with all tetras, the Gold Tetra needs to be kept in schools of at least 6 or more to avoid stress. Gold Tetras are slightly delicate, so should be added to an established tank with stable water parameters. They enjoy the cover provided by a planted tank, and will readily accept processed Flake Foods. Gold tetras are very beautiful in the aquarium, and can be quite energetic so open swimming space is a must as well as some cover.
