Unpretentious and tenacious tetra von Rio, the content of which is easy, is a real find for a beginner. The main condition is a flock of at least 7 individuals. The main rules of care are as follows:

  1. Aquarium with a volume of 40 liters, filled with soft settled or filtered water, densely planted near the rear wall with plants that do not interfere with the free movement of fish. There must be shelters in the form of grottoes, caves, a ceramic pot or decorative coat can be half buried in the ground – tetras will appreciate this.
  2. Soil – any dark. Against its background, the fish will look bright and attractive.
  3. The lighting is subdued.
  4. Water fluctuations are moderate.
  5. Water temperature – from +23 to +28 degrees.

Underwater dwellers become uncomfortable, they try to stay near the surface of the water or start jumping out of the aquarium.

    To regulate the accumulation of harmful impurities, it is recommended to replace 25−50% of water at least 1 time in 2 weeks, depending on the number of fish.

    Spawning begins in the morning. The female sweeps up to 400 eggs. Caviar falls and falls through the separator net to the bottom.

    Immediately after the end of the spawning of manufacturers, they are rejected.

    After 24 hours, the larvae appear. The separator grid is immediately removed, after shaking it. After 3-4 days, the fry are already actively swimming and well fed with fine powdered food (Artemia naupilia or Cyclops).
