  1. Tank Size: Provide a tank of at least 20-30 gallons for a school of Colombian Tetras, but larger tanks are preferable for maintaining a larger group.

  2. Water Parameters: Maintain stable conditions with a temperature range of 72-78°F (22-26°C), a pH level of 6.0-7.5, and moderately soft to moderately hard water.

  3. Filtration: Effective filtration is essential to maintain water quality and oxygenation. Colombian Tetras are active swimmers and produce waste.

  4. Aquascape: Create a well-planted tank with open swimming areas and some hiding spots. They appreciate a natural environment with driftwood, rocks, and live plants.

  5. Tank Mates: Colombian Tetras are peaceful and can be kept with other small, non-aggressive community fish that share similar water parameters.

  6. Diet: They are omnivores, accepting high-quality flakes, pellets, live or frozen foods like brine shrimp, daphnia, and bloodworms, and occasional vegetable matter.
