Ember Tetras (Hyphessobrycon amandae) can be found most heavily in Central Brazil in the Araguaia River basin.
The main draw of the Ember Tetra is its bright orange color. This really makes them stand out in most freshwater nano aquariums and means this fish will likely be a popular choice for years to come.
The typical Ember Tetra lifespan is between 2 and 4 years.Â While there have been some sources that have reported a lifespan of up to ten years, thatâs widely considered to be inaccurate.
Maximizing their lifespan is heavily dependent on the quality of care they receive and the habitat they live in. Aside from the obvious water quality impact, the biggest influencer on their health and lifespan tends to be the presence of plants. Ember Tetras that live in heavily planted tanks tend to live much longer than the ones that donât.
The appearance of Ember Tetras is the main reason theyâre so popular among the aquarist community. These fish are extremely pretty and their bright coloration makes them mesmerizing to watch swim around in your tank.Â
