The Serpae tetra, scientific name Hyphessobrycon eques also known as the Red Minor tetra, Jewel tetra or Callistus tetra, is a species of tetra, a tropical freshwater fish of the characin family of order Characiformes. It is native to the Amazon River drainage in Brazil, Peru, Paraguay, Bolivia and northern Argentina.
A school of Serpae Tetra is a real eye-catcher in the aquarium. These fish are also easy to care for. Serpae Tetra are usually fine in a community aquarium, but they are not always easy to get along with. Smaller fish, especially, may become the targets of relentless harassment and fin nipping. Serpae Tetra will do best with the company of their own kind in a school of at least 6. They can also get along fine with other similar-sized and active fish. Once established, they are very hardy, long lived, and easy to breed.
