Scientific Name: The Silvertip Tetra is scientifically known as Hasemania nana. It belongs to the family Characidae and is native to the freshwater rivers and streams of South America.

Water Quality:

  • Temperature: Maintain the water temperature between 72°F to 80°F (22°C to 27°C) to ensure the well-being and health of the Silvertip Tetra.
  • pH Level: Aim for a slightly acidic to neutral pH range of 6.5 to 7.5, which closely replicates their natural habitat conditions.

  • KH Level: A carbonate hardness (KH) level between 4 to 8 dKH is recommended to maintain stable water conditions.

Feeding: Silvertip Tetras are omnivorous and have a versatile appetite. Offer them high-quality flake or pellet food supplemented with live or frozen foods like brine shrimp, daphnia, and bloodworms to ensure a balanced diet.

Substrates and Tank Decorations: Provide a fine-grained substrate and plenty of open swimming space, as Silvertip Tetras prefer a well-planted aquarium with driftwood and rocks to provide hiding spots and cover.

Suitable Plants: Consider using plants like Java Moss, Amazon Sword, and Cryptocoryne, which provide a natural environment and also serve as potential spawning sites.

Sexing: Sexing Silvertip Tetras can be challenging, but males may be slimmer and more colorful than females, especially during breeding periods.

Breeding: Breeding Silvertip Tetras is possible in a separate breeding tank with ample vegetation and dim lighting. Provide small, fine-leaved plants where the eggs can attach.
