📏 Size: Petite but full of personality, reaching around 2 inches (5 cm) in length.


🌊 pH & Temperature: They thrive in a pH range of 6-8 and temperatures between 75°F - 82°F (24°C - 28°C), mimicking their natural Amazon River habitat.


⏳ Lifespan: With proper care, these little wonders can grace your tank for 5 years or longer, bringing joy for years to come.


🐟 Behavior: Peaceful and sociable, they love to school together, creating a mesmerizing display of movement and color. Plus, they're listed as non-invasive, making them excellent tank mates for various species.



🌿 Diet: As omnivores, they enjoy a diverse menu including live, frozen, and flake foods, ensuring a balanced diet. They may nibble on live plants too, adding a touch of natural behavior to your tank.


🏠 Aquarium Size & Tank Mates: A 10-gallon tank is perfect for a school of these beauties, though they may feel more comfortable in groups of 6 or more. While generally peaceful, they may feel skittish around larger tank mates, so choose companions wisely.
