Species: Hemigrammus caudovittatus
Size: 7.5cm (3 inch)
Tank levels: All
Habitat: Plate river basin of Argentina, Paraquay, and Brazil
Remarks: It may eat soft-leaved plants.
Comments: A thin, horizontal blue line begins behind the gill-cover of this slim fish, and tapers until obscured by a darker line, ending in the centre of the caudal fin. Male colours intensify during spawning. Slightly bigger than your average tetra, so they make a good choice to mix with other small fish from the tetra family, without posing a threat to the other smaller tetra fish. As they will get along fine, and add that bit extra to your aquarium tank.
