Hemigrammus bleheri “Rummynose Tetra”

$3.00$4.00

Hemigrammus bleheri, also known as the Firehead Tetra, is one of three species that can show up under the name Rummynose Tetra; the other two are Hemigrammus rhodostomus (the “real” Rummy-nose Tetra) and Petitella georgiae (the “false” Rummy-nose Tetra). H. bleheri is the most common of the three in the trade.  It’s a peaceful tetra with great schooling tendencies that attains a respectable size of roughly 1.5″. Great for planted tanks too.  Best kept in a group, not singly. This fish will definitely let you know whether it’s happy or not; if it’s pale or loses the red coloration in the face, it’s not happy. Either the surroundings or the water is off.

Why did I bother to offer a somewhat “common” fish? Well, I recently saw a planted tank with a shoal of them in top notch shape and said “I need to have some here”.  And now you can have them too!  Rummynose have a reputation for being touchy at first; the ones I have on offer at this time have been on hand for a couple months.
