Nematobrycon palmeri, commonly known as the emperor tetra, is a species of characid fish found in the Atrato and San Juan river basins in western Colombia. It was first imported in the aquarium trade to the United States in 1960 and has since become well established. Info Courtesy of Wikipedia
Emperor Tetras can grow to be 1.5" long including the tail. They are active and quarrel with each other, but rarely do much harm. Recommended tank mates for the Emperor Tetra include small fish like Guppies, Platys, Corydoras Catfish, and Gouramis. They are most comfortable at about 75 to 78 degrees F with a pH of 7 with moderate hardness. It is best to house these fish in at least a 20-gallon tank, but more is better, because they quarrel with each other.
