Red Phantom Tetra

AquariumFishSale.com imports red phantom tetras from Columbia where they seem to have the most vibrant red. Males have solid red dorsal fins that are a tad higher than the females, and the females have white and black tipped dorsal fins. Red phantom tetras swim in schools of six or more and generally move around the mid-level of the aquarium.
