Platinum Rummy Nose Tetra


The Platinum colour variation have a much more intense silverish/blue shine to the scales compared to normal rummy nose. The normal rummy nose tetras have their usual whitish/silver body color, but are much less shiny than the platinum ones.

The rummy-nose tetra is a schooling fish, which exhibits tight schooling behaviour both in the wild and in the aquarium. Consequently, these fishes should be maintained in groups of no fewer than six individuals, with larger numbers being preferable where space permits-these tetras preferring about a 25 gallon/80 litre aquarium. All three species are lovers of warm aquarium water, the temperature range for maintenance being 24 °C to 31 °C, with the fishes sometimes requiring temperatures as high as 33 °C for breeding
