Sometimes called the Fire Tetra, the Ember Tetra (Hyphessobrycon Amandae) is a small freshwater fish from the Characidae family, and is native to the slow flowing rivers of Central-Western Brazil..
These fish are very popular with fishkeepers due to their bright appearance but espite their size, these species are not timid. In fact, they are active, fast swimmers and quite playful. They can be found swimming through plants or hiding in them. You are also more likely to find them in the middle section of the tank (they rarely swim close to bottom).Even though Ember Tetras are active and not easily scared, they still require some time to adapt to a new tank. During that time you can expect fish to act strange or be overly cautious.
