Temperament: Peaceful

Company: Bucktooth Tetra are suitable for a single species aquarium.

Water parameters: Temperature 23 - 28°C and pH 5.5 - 7.5
Aquarium setup: Bucktooth Tetra are best kept in a single species tank in large numbers with a soft, sandy substrate, some driftwood roots and branches, However, the fish look most effective when kept in a heavily planted tank. Good filtration is required to maintain the stable conditions needed to manage such a large school. They do best in a biologically mature biotope system with soft, acidic water conditions.

Breeding: The Bucktooth Tetra is difficult to breed, as putting a pair in a normal breeding tank situation often results in fighting rather than mating. Breeding is best done in a community tank where there is more chance that females and males can pair together without aggressive fighting.
