Bucktooth Tetra


Bucktooth Tetra Exodonus

The buck tooth tetra should be kept in a small school with larger aggressive species. In the wild this fish likes to school around the teeth of larger piranha and pick at the meat in their teeth. The buck tooth tetra, or exodon tetra, will eat smaller less aggressive fish. These are one of the few tetras with visible teeth.
